Checkpoint #9: Questions 5 - 7

According to the information that comes with a certain prescription drug, when taking this drug, there is a 20% chance of experiencing nausea (N) and a 50% chance of experiencing decreased sexual drive (D). The information also states that there is a 15% chance of experiencing both side effects.

What is the probability of

• experiencing nausea or a decrease in sexual drive?
• experiencing only nausea?
• experiencing neither of these side effects?
