This test is 80% accurate if the student is not overstressed, but only 70% accurate if the student is overstressed. It is known that 50% of all students are overstressed. Given that a particular student tests negative for stress, what is the probability that the test result is correct? Problem 2 A parking lot consists of a single row containing n parking spaces ( n ≥ 2) . Mary arrives when all spaces are free. Tom is the next person to arrive. Each person makes an equally likely choice among all available spaces at the time of arrival. Describe the sample space. Obtain P ( A ) , the probability the parking spaces selected by Mary and Tom are at most 1 space apart. Problem 3 (a) Let A and B be events such that A ⊂ B .Can A and B be independent? (b) We are told that events A and B are independent. In addition,events A and C are independent. Is it true that A is independent of B ∪...
