1. ### The probability of selecting a random student who is enrolled in both the courses  is 0.280.

Step-by-step explanation:

Here, the total number of freshman in the university = 500

The number of students enrolled in Economics = n(E)  = 323

The number of students enrolled in Mathematics = n(M)  = 205

The number of students enrolled in Both Economics and math

= n(E∩M )  = 140

Let F : Event of selecting a student who is enrolled in both the courses

So, from the given data: So, the probability of selecting a random students who is enrolled in both the courses  is
