Answer:0.568

Step-by-step explanation:P( e-book) = 0.28, P(On the bestseller list) = 0.4

Since event e-book and bestseller list are independent,

( Using formula, P( A OR B) = P(A) + P(B) – P( A AND B) )

P(e-book AND On the bestseller list) = P( e-book) * P(On the bestseller list)

P( e-book OR on the bestseller list) = P( e-book) + P(On the bestseller list)

– P( e-book) * P(On the bestseller list)

= 0.28 + 0.4 – 0.28 * 0.4

= 0.568
