a)  P ( VS  given   F  )   =   37 / ( 37 + 192)  = 37/ 229

b)   P ( VS  and F)   =  37/700

c)  P ( VS or F)  = P(VS)  + P (F)  -  P (VS   ∩ F)  =

(37 + 22 + 11)  /700  + (37 + 192)/700    - 37/700   =

[ 70  + 229  - 37 ] / 700  =

262/700   =   131 / 350

d) P ( F)  =  (37 + 192)  / 700  =   229 / 700

e)  P (VS)    =  (37 + 22 + 11)  /700  =   70 /700  = 1/10

f)  P ( F given VS ) =   37  / 70

g)   Apparently.....those with military veteran status    have a more favorable view  of capital punishment  than those without  veteran military status

Those with  military status    have  a  probability  of  37/70   = about 53% of favoring capital punishment

Thos without  military veteran status  have  a probability of   192 / (192 + 204 + 234)  = 192/630 = only  about 30%  of favoring capital punishment
