Suppose that when rolled, each side (and hence each number) has an equal probability of being the bottom face when it lands. We roll two such dice. Let X be the sum of the numbers on the bottom face of the two dice. (a) What is the probability that X is at least five? Listing the possible combinations of the two dice: I 1 12 13 14 2 I 22 23 24 3 I 32 33 34 41 42 43 44 This yields 16 possiblities. Ten have the sum of five or greater. Thus, 10116= 5/8 .,/* (b) How does your answer to (a) change if you are told that the bottom face of the first die has the number "3" on it? :, I J I I oJ' I' 1 . . . l ( If the bottom number is three then the first die that means the only combinations you can count are the ones that have 3 as the first number. 3/16 I fl' (c) How does your answer to (a) change if you are told that the bottom face ofone of the dice has the number "3" on it?

If a day is sunny, the following day will be sunny with probability 0.60. If a day is cloudy, the following day will be cloudy with probability 0.70. Suppose it is cloudy on Monday.
