Probability Calculation

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


Three events occur with probabilities P(E1)=0.38​, P(E2)=0.14​, and P(E3)=0.51. If the event B​ occurs, the probability becomes P(E1|B)=0.26​, P(B)=0.33. Complete parts a through c.

a. Calculate P(E1 and B).  ==> 0.38 + 0.26

b. Compute P(E1 or B). 0.38 - 0.33

c. Assume that E1​, E2​, and E3 are independent events. Calculate P(E1 and E2 and E3). --> 0.38 + 0.14 + 0.51
