Hello. I'm new to this forum and I need help on this question:

Team A is playing a football match against Team B. if the probability that A will win is 4/11 and the probability that B will win is 2/11, find the probability that the match will be a draw.

I'm not sure if I should add the probabilities or multiply them, and then subtract the result from 1.

So it's either:

A) P(match will be a draw)= 1-(4/11 +2/11)

=5/11

or:

B) P(match will be a draw)= 1-(4/11)(2/11)

=113/141

Thanks a lot for any assistance provided!

Ps: Is this considered as asking for answers directly?
