Solution

Let A be the event of getting student pass in English

Let B be the event of getting student pass in Tamil

P(A ∩ B) = 0.5 = `1/2`

P(A) = 0.75 = `75/100 = 3/4`

P(A ∪ B) = 0.1

P(A ∪ B) = `1/10`

1 − P(A ∪ B) = `1/10`

P(A ∪ B) = `1 - 1/10`

P(A ∪ B) = `9/10`

P(A) + P(B) − P(A ∩ B) = `9/10`

= `3/4 + "P"("B") - 1/2 = 9/10`

P(B) = `9/10 + 1/2 - 3/4`

= `(18 + 10 - 15)/20`

= `13/20`

Probability of passing the tamil examination is `13/20`
