5 Axioms of Decision Making

Thank you for this article. Can you please guide me on how did you simplify and compute the probability of A & B in the final step.

The RD turns into .9/3 = 9/30ths, the R turns into 6/30ths, and the FS turns into 3/30ths. Add those together and you get 9+6+3=18, and 18/30 simplifies to 9/15ths. What about the A case? Here the underlying probabilities are 1, .6, and 0, so 10/30, 6/30, and 0/30. 16/30 simplifies to 8/15ths.
