Solution

Since P(A) = `"P"("A"/"B") = 1/5`,

P(A) = `1/5 and ("P"("A" ∩ "B"))/("P"("B")) = 1/5`

∴ P(A) = `1/5`   ...(i)

P(B) = 5P(A ∩ B)  ...(ii)

Since `"P"("B"/"A") = 1/3`,

`("P"("A" ∩ "B"))/("P"("A")) =1/3`

∴ P(A) = 3P(A ∩ B)   ...(iii)

`"P"("A'"/"B") = ("P"("A'"∩ "B"))/("P"("B")`

= `("P"("B") - "P"("A" ∩  "B"))/("P"("B")`

= `1 - ("P"("A" ∩ "B"))/("P"("B"))`

= `1 - 1/5`     ...[From (ii)]

= `4/5`.
