Denote by 𝐴 and 𝐵 two events with
probabilities the probability of 𝐴 is 0.2 and the probability of 𝐵 is 0.47. Given that the probability of 𝐴
intersection 𝐵 is 0.18, find the probability of 𝐴 union 𝐵.

In order to answer this question,
we recall the addition rule of probability, which links all four of these
events. This states that the probability of
𝐴 union 𝐵 is equal to the probability of 𝐴 plus the probability of 𝐵 minus the
probability of 𝐴 intersection 𝐵. Substituting in the values from
this question, we have the probability of 𝐴 union 𝐵 is equal to 0.2 plus 0.47
minus 0.18. This is equal to 0.49. It is important to note that we
could also represent this using Venn diagrams, as shown.
