What is the probability that at least two of the people becomes ill? c. What is the probability that none of the three people becomes ill?

Solution

VerifiedStep 1

1 of 4Exactly one: $\dfrac{3}{8} = 37.5\%$

There are 8 possible cases: (I,I,I),(H,H,H),(I,I,H),(I,H,H),(I,H,I),(H,I,I),(H,H,I),(H,I,H) where H is healthy, and I is ill. There are 3 cases in which exactly one is ill. Calculated by the formula P(A) = Useful Outcomes / All Outcomes we get the result.
