How do you interpret these from this venn diagram?

P(only A occurring) = 0.4

P(A and B occurring) = 0.3

P(only B occurring) = 0.2

P(neither A nor B nor both A and B (basically absolutely nothing happening)) = 0.1

Whoops, sorry, just noticed the link.

P(A' and B') is the probability that neither A nor B happen, so that's the bit outside the venn diagram.

P(A' and B) is the probability that A doesn't happen, but B does happen. So that's the same as saying only B happens. You can take it from there.

P(A or B') is the probability that A happens (that could include A and B happening as well) or B doesn't happen. So you add these two together.

Hey, if you're free you think you can maybe help me with some AQA c4 questions? The AQA c4 thread is pretty inactive
