Here it is given that he probability that event A occurs is \(P(A)=0.3\), the probability that event B does not occur is 0.4 that is \(\displaystyle{P}{\left({B}^{{c}}\right)}={0.4}\) therefore \(\displaystyle{P}{\left({B}\right)}={1}-{P}{\left({B}^{{c}}\right)}={1}-{0.4}={0.6}\)
For two event A and B, we know that \(\displaystyle{P}{\left({A}∪{B}\right)}={P}{\left({A}\right)}+{P}{\left({B}\right)}-{P}{\left({A}⋂{B}\right)}\).
Now if \(P(A∪B)=0.7\). therefore

\(\displaystyle{P}{\left({A}⋂{B}\right)}={P}{\left({A}\right)}+{P}{\left({B}\right)}-{P}{\left({A}∪{B}\right)}=0.3+0.6-0.7 =0.9-0.7 =0.2\)
Therefore the probability that events A and B occur simultaneously is 0.02

Let A represent having soup and let B represent having salad for lunch.
Which statement is true?
Having soup and salad for lunch are independent events because \(\displaystyle{P}{\left({A}∣{B}\right)}={P}{\left({A}\right)}{\quad\text{and}\quad}{P}{\left({B}∣{A}\right)}={P}{\left({B}\right)}\).
Having soup and salad for lunch are not independent because \(\displaystyle{P}{\left({A}∣{B}\right)}={P}{\left({A}\right)}{\quad\text{and}\quad}{P}{\left({B}∣{A}\right)}={P}{\left({B}\right)}\).
Having soup and salad are not independent events because \(\displaystyle{P}{\left({A}∣{B}\right)}≠{P}{\left({A}\right)}{\quad\text{and}\quad}{P}{\left({B}∣{A}\right)}≠{P}{\left({B}\right)}\).

Two firms V and W consider bidding on a road-building job, which may or may not be awarded depending on the amounts of the bids. Firm V submits a bid and the probability is 0.8 that it will get the job provided firm W does not bid. The probability is 0.7 that W will be bid, and if it does, the probability that V will get the job is only 0.4 If V gets the job, what is the probability that W did not bid?
