    Finding P(AnB') (Homework)

    Hi there, this is my first post on this forum. I am trying to find the probability of P(BnA') the data given is: P(A) = 1/3 P(B) = 1/3 P(AnB) = 1/10 My attempt: P(A') = 1-(1/3) = 2/3 P(BnA')= P(B) * P(A') = 1/3 * 2/3 = 2/9 The reason I think what I did was wrong is because I...
