# Three people go to the market in the morning with the following probabilities: 1/2, 2/3, and 3/4. What is the likelihood that two go to the market on a given morning?

We'll have to work out the probabilities for all three combinations of two, *where one stays home* . Let's call the people

To find the likelihood that two people go to the market on a given morning, we need to consider the probabilities of different combinations of two people going to the market.

Person 1 and Person 2: Probability = (1/2) * (2/3) = 1/3

Person 1 and Person 3: Probability = (1/2) * (3/4) = 3/8

Person 2 and Person 3: Probability = (2/3) * (3/4) = 1/2

Adding these probabilities together: 1/3 + 3/8 + 1/2 = 8/24 + 9/24 + 12/24 = 29/24

So, the likelihood that two people go to the market on a given morning is 29/24.

When evaluating a one-sided limit, you need to be careful when a quantity is approaching zero since its sign is different depending on which way it is approaching zero from. Let us look at some examples.
