Hi Experts,

Please help me think through the following probability problem:

An event can happen anytime during the next 10 years (2017-2026)
For each of the years 2017,2018,2019 we are given conditional probabilities of the event taking place. How can I solve for the probability of the event happening during 2020-2026 when my expected time of event is 2 years.
