A single candy of this type is selected at random from a newly-opened bag. What is the probability that the candy has the given color(s)?

Red, green, or orange


Step 1
1 of 2

P(red or green or orange) =

P(red)+P(green)+P(orange) =

0.2 + 0.1 + 0.1 = 0.4

The events are mutually exclusive, so we can look up the probabilities in the table and add them.
