Question # Suppose you ask a friend to randomly choose an integer

Fractions
ANSWERED Suppose you ask a friend to randomly choose an integer between 1 and 10, inclusive. What is the probability that the number will be more than 4 or odd? (Enter your probability as a fraction.) 2021-08-12

6 of the 10 integers between 1 and 10 inclusive are more than 4 (that is, 5,6,7,8,9,10).
The probability is the number of favorable outcomes divided by the number of possible outcomes: P(>4)=# of favorable outcomes/# of possible outcomes=$$\displaystyle\frac{{6}}{{10}}$$
5 of the 10 integers between 1 and 10 inclusive are odd (that is, 1,3,5,7,9). $$\displaystyle{P}{\left({o}{d}{d}\right)}=\frac{\text{of favorable outcomes}}{\text{of possible outcomes}}=$$$$\displaystyle\frac{{5}}{{10}}$$
3 of the 10 integers between 1 and 10 inclusive are move than 4 and odd (that is, 5,7,9). $$\displaystyle{P}{\left(>{4}{\quad\text{and}\quad}{o}{d}{d}\right)}\frac{\text{of favorable outcomes}}{\text{of possible outcomes}}=$$$$\displaystyle\frac{{3}}{{10}}$$
Use the General addition rule for any two events: $$\displaystyle{P}{\left({A}{U}{B}\right)}={P}{\left({A}\right)}+{P}{\left({B}\right)}-{P}{\left({A}⋂{B}\right)}$$
$$\displaystyle{P}{\left(>{4}{\quad\text{or}\quad}{o}{d}{d}\right)}={P}{\left(>{4}\right)}+{P}{\left({o}{d}{d}\right)}-{P}{\left(>{4}{\quad\text{and}\quad}{o}{d}{d}\right)}=\frac{6}{{10}}+\frac{5}{{10}}-\frac{3}{{10}}=\frac{{{6}+{5}-{3}}}{{10}}=\frac{8}{{10}}=\frac{4}{{5}}$$
