P(A U B) = P(A) + P(B)  P(A ∩ B)
0.88 = 0.5+0.4 P(A ∩ B)
Or, P(A ∩ B)= 0.5+0.4  0.88 = 0.02
P(B/A) = P(A ∩ B)/P(A)
= 0.02/0.5
= 0.04
Kindly let me know for any clarification.

So, you treat it like an equation in Algebra, basically, adding a negative to the other side to balance out the probability?

Actually it is conditional probability problem. We have find out P(A∩B)to determine P(B/A) and this is what I have done.
