My teacher solved some questions in class but I don't understand them. I am just wondering if I am allowed to post these questions if experts can explain them.

consider a
What is the probability that the person has an accident?   Write the answer
What is the probability that the person drove less than 10,000?    Write the answer
send answers and I will go to the next step

If I understand you work correctly you gave an answer to part a of 0.2. But that is obviously wrong because the probability of just having an accident by itself is greater than that.
Helpful question: If the probability of A happening is 0.3 AND the probability of B happening is 0.4
What is the probability of either A OR B happening?     Write the equation
What is the probability of A AND B happening?     Write the equation

So how can the probability of doing either be less than the probability of having an accident?
I think you are probably applying the wrong equation, How would you do the other two simplified questions?
