An experiment has four possible outcomes, labeled A to D. The
probability of A is P_{A}= 40% and of B is P_{B} = 30%. Outcome C
is twice as probable as outcome D. What are the probabilities P_{C }and P_{D}?

Therefore the probabilities are:

An experiment has four possible outcomes, labeled A to D. The
probability of A is P_{A}= 40% and of B is P_{B} = 30%. Outcome C is twice as probable as outcome D.

The most crucial principle in this problem is that all conceivable outcomes' probability must add up to 1, or 100%. As a result, utilising the information provided in the problem, we can develop two equations.
