The probability of a certain runner finishing in the top 5 of a race is 20%. The probability of him finishing in the top 10 is 45%.

What is the probability of him finishing anywhere from 6-10th. Is it: 45%-20% = 25%?

If there is not enough information to answer this question then what other info would we need?

25% sounds right to me!

P(outside top 10) = 55% (100-45)

P(6-10) = 25%

P(top 5) = 20%

total = 100%
