(a) If one full-time student is selected at random, what is the probability that the student who is chosen will not be a freshman?
We're told that there are 8,978 full-time students
Among those students, the number of freshmen = 1812 + 625 = 2437

The remaining students are NOT freshmen
So, the number of students who are NOT freshmen = 8,978 - 2437 = 6541

So, P(a non freshman is chosen) = 6541/8,978

Answer: 6,541/8,978

------------------------------------------
(b) If one full-time student who lives off campus is selected at random, what is the probability that the student will be a senior?
The number of full-time students who live OFF campus = 625 + 908 + 1282 + 1623 = 4438
Among those 4438 students there are 1623 seniors
So, P(a senior is selected) = 1623/4438

Answer: 1,623/4,438

------------------------------------------
(c) If one full-time student who is a freshman or sophomore is selected at random, what is the probability that the student will be a student who lives on campus?
The number of students who are freshmen OR sophomores = 1812 + 1236 + 625 + 908 = 4581
Among those 4551 students the number of students who live ON campus = 1812 + 1236 = 3048

So, P(chosen student lives ON campus) = 3048/4581

Answer: 3,048/4,581
