Wayne and Peter are member for a soccer team. The probability that Wayne scores a goal in a randomly selected game is 0.23. The probability that Peter scores is 0.18. And the probability that at least one of them scores is 0.39. What is the probability that they both score in a game?

\(\displaystyle P(W\cup P)=P(W)+P(P)-P(W\cap P)\)
