Can you tell me if my calculations are right?  Thanks.

A hotel conducted a survey of its guests.​ Sixty-two surveys were completed. Based on the data from the​ survey, shown in the accompanying​ table, determine the following probabilities using the relative frequency  assessment method.      

Relative frequency assessment method---> P(E1) = Number of times E1 occurs / N


                                           Any Problems                  
      Type of Trip Problems No problems
                  
Business            24      9      15
Pleasure            23      3      20
Combination      15      1      14
Grand Total      62      13      49

                                        Alternative of Staffs

no, your answers are not correct.

to find the probability of two events both occurring you multiply their individual probabilities.
to find the probability of either of two events occuring you add their individual probabilities.

both of the above statements assume the events are mutually exclusive.

I have no idea what you were attempting with your a, b, or c answers.  

Also, for A,  do your combination people count as business, or is A asking only about strictly business.

If it's strictly business then your probability of one person is the number of business people out of the total number of people.

If combination counts then the probability of one persion is the number business and combination people out of the total number of people.

So, what would those be?

Then, the odds of the second person would be one less than what the first was (because the first person "uses up" one event) but out of the same total.

Then you multiply those two together.
