Hi. We're answering Question 40 that talks about, um, mutually exclusive events. And that's the key term with this particular question from to be able to get it correct and so mutually exclusive means events can't happen at the same time. And our question tells us that the probability for E is equal to 0.4 in the probability for AF is equal to 0.5. And it asked us to find the probability of e vertical line F and the vertical line. F means given F. And since the events are mutually exclusive, they can't happen at the same time. So you can't have e happening given that F happens because they wouldn't happen at the same time. So that tells us, since they can't happen at the same time, that can't happen. One given the other. And so therefore, our answer is zero, and that's the end of that question. Have a good day
