Therefore, there is a 100% chance of rain either today or tomorrow. 17 There is a 50% chance of rain today and a 50% chance of rain tomorrow. Therefore, there is a 75% chance of rain either today or tomorrow. 18 There is a 50% chance of rain today and a 50% chance of rain tomorrow. Therefore, there is a 25% chance that it will rain today but not tomorrow. 19 There is a 50% chance of rain today and a 50% chance of rain tomorrow. Therefore, there is a 50% chance of rain on exactly one of the next two days. 20 If E is the event that an athlete tests positive in a drug test and F is the event that an athlete has used drugs, then P(E|F) is the probability that an athlete who has used drugs tests positive.
