  1. Sep 30, 2007 #1
    based on the data from the census bureau, when a woman over the age of 25 is randomly selected, there is a 0.218 probability that she has a bachelor degree. if a woman over the age of 25 is randomly selected, find the probability that she does not have a bachelors degree


    help this. Thankyou

    That she has a degree or does not have a degree are mutually exclusive events. What do you know about probabilities of mutually exclusive events?
