(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Suppose that P(A) = 0.8 and P(AorB) = 0.9 , determine P(B) If

a) A and B are independent

b) A and B are mutually exclusive

2. Relevant equations

for Independence P(A and B) = P(A) x P(B)

for Mutually Exclusive P(A or B) = P(A) + P(B)

3. The attempt at a solution

for A) just by the formula i can say that P(A and B) = P(A) x P(B)

but i dont see still how i can find P(B), the P(A or B) part is really confusing to me.
