The probability of two students A and B coming to school on time are \frac{2}{7} and \frac{4}{7} ,  respectively. Assuming that the events ‘A coming on time’ and ‘B coming on time’ are independent, find the probability of only one of them coming to school on time.

Let E1 : A comimg on time and 
      E2: B coming on time
Here p\left ( E_{1} \right )= \frac{2}{7},\; \; p\left ( \vec{E_{1}} \right )= \frac{5}{7}
        p\left ( E_{2} \right )= \frac{4}{7},\; \; p\left ( \vec{E_{2}} \right )= \frac{3}{7}
\therefore  p(only one on time) = p\left ( E_{1} \right )p\left ( \bar{E_{2}} \right )+p\left ( E_{2} \right )p\left ( \bar{E_{1}} \right )
                                     =\frac{2}{7}\times \frac{3}{7}+\frac{4}{7}\times \frac{5}{7}
                                     =\frac{26}{49}
