Hello everyone

New here and doing some random probability questions in prep for the GRE. I found one and I know it is simple, but I am stumped, and there is no answer online. Here it is--any help is much appreciated.

Ralph is considering whether to use an umbrella. Previously, Ralph's friend Laura had used an umbrella 70% of the time. If Laura does not use an umbrella, the probability that Ralph will use an umbrella is .50. If Laura does use an umbrella, the probability that Ralph uses an umbrella is .25.

a) If Ralph uses an umbrella, what is the probability that Laura did not use an umbrella?

b)What is the probability that Ralph will use an umbrella?

Thanks so much in advance.
