```							welcome to askiitiansGiven that, the two events say A and B are independent if P(A ∩ B) = P(A). P(B)From the given data, we can observe that P(A) = 1/2 & P(B) = 1/3The probability that the problem is solved = Probability that person A solves the problem or the person B solves the ProblemThis can be written as:= P(A ∪ B) = P(A) + P(B) – P(A ∩ B)If A and B are independent, then P(A ∩ B) = P(A). P(B)Now, substitute the values,= (1/2) × (1/3)P(A ∩ B) = 1/6Now, the probability of problem solved is written asP(Problem is solved) = P(A) + P(B) – P(A ∩ B)= (1/2) + (1/3) – (1/6)= (3/6) + (2/6) – (1/6)= 4/6= 2/3Hence, the probability of the problem solved is 2/3.Thanks
