The weather is dreadful here. It rains on three times as many days as there are rain-free days. Luckily the daily weather forecast is fairly good. Whether the forecast is for rain or for no rain, it is correct on nine occasions out of ten.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

What is the probability that the weather forecast will predict rain tomorrow?

The answer is 13/16, however I am unable to see how to arrive at this answer. Could someone please let me know of the working in order to recieve this asnwer?

Thanks in advance.
