## Answers ( )

There are a 25% probability that Christine fails the course.

Step-by-step explanation:

We have these following probabilities:

A 50% probability that Christine finds a tutor.

With a tutor, she has a 10% probability of failling.

A 50% probability that Christine does not find a tutor.

Without a tutor, she has a 40% probability of failing.

Probability that she fails:

10% of 50%(fail with a tutor) plus 40% of 50%(fail without a tutor). So

There are a 25% probability that Christine fails the course.
