1. a.) The event is never smoked and died from cancer which is denoted by E. Formula is given as P(E)=N(E)/N(S). In probability, and means intersection. Total number of adult males in the survey = 155606. Number of adults who never smoked and died from Cancer = 723. The probability that the male never smoked and died from Cancer = 723/155606. The probability that the male never smoked and died from cancer is 0.004646.

1. b.) The event is current smokers and died from cancer which is denoted by E. Formula is given as P(E)=N(E)/N(S). In probability, and means intersection. Total number of adult males in the survey = 155606. Number of adults who were current smokers and died from Cancer = 346. The probability that the male were current smokers and died from Cancer = 346/155606. The probability that the male were current smokers and died from cancer is 0.002224.

1. c.) This is conditional probability. The formula is given by P(D|N)=P(D&N)/P(N). D denotes died from cancer
