LET probability of event E and F are P(E) and P(F) RESPECTIVELY
AND P(EUF) IS THE PROBALITY OF OCCURENEC OF EVENT E OR EVENT F
AND enter image description here

IS THE PROBABLITY OF OCCRENEC OF BOTH EVENT SIMUALTANEOUSLY

SINCE P(EUF) =P(E) +P(F) - enter image description here

SO P(EUF)=.30 + .25 -.14
=.55 -.14
P(EUF)=.41
