In a certain city only two newspapers $$A$$ and $$B$$ are published, it is known that $$25$$% of the city population reads $$A$$ and $$20$$% reads $$B$$ while $$8$$% reads both $$A$$ and $$B$$. It is also known that $$30$$% of those who read $$A$$ but not $$B$$ look into advertisements and $$40$$% of those who read $$B$$ but not $$A$$ look into advertisements while $$50$$% of those who read both $$A$$ and $$B$$ look into advertisements. What is the percentage of the population that reads an advertisement?

$$A, B, C$$ are events such that

$$P\left( A \right) = 0.3,P\left( B \right) = 0.4,P\left( C \right) = 0.8$$

$$P\left( {AB} \right) = 0.08,P\left( {AC} \right) = 0.28;\,\,P\left( {ABC} \right) = 0.09$$

$$P\left( A \right) = 0.3,P\left( B \right) = 0.4,P\left( C \right) = 0.8$$

$$P\left( {AB} \right) = 0.08,P\left( {AC} \right) = 0.28;\,\,P\left( {ABC} \right) = 0.09$$

If $$P\left( {A \cup B \cup C} \right) \ge 0.75,$$ then show that $$P$$ $$(BC)$$ lies in the interval $$0.23 \le x \le 0.48$$

Cards are drawn one by one at random from a well - shuffled full pack of $$52$$ playing cards until $$2$$ aces are obtained for the first time. If $$N$$ is the number of cards required to be drawn, then show that $${P_r}\left\{ {N = n} \right\} = {{\left( {n - 1} \right)\left( {52 - n} \right)\left( {51 - n} \right)} \over {50 \times 49 \times 17 \times 13}}$$ where $$2 \le n \le 50$$
