Let F be the event that the blood type is A . We want P ( F  E ) = P ( FE ) /P ( E ). But F ⊂ E and so P ( F  E ) = P ( FE ) /P ( E ) = P ( F ) /P ( E ) = . 41 / ( . 41 + . 04) = . 9111 . 3. Let E be the event of getting an A in calc. Let F be the event of getting an A in physics. Then P ( F  E ) = P ( EF ) /P ( E ) = . 2 /. 32 = . 625 . 8. Let A be the event of a sum of 5 and B be the event of different numbers. We want P ( A  B ) = P ( AB ) /P ( B ). Note that if a 5 is thrown, the two numbers had to be different. Thus, A ⊂ AB and so P ( A  B ) = P ( A ) 1 P ( B ) = 4 36 1 (1 P ( B c )) = 4 36 1 (1 6 / 36) = 4 30 = . 133333 . 9. Let A be the event of exactly two trout and let B be the event that at least three of the fish of not trout. Note that B c is then the event that at most two fish are not trout and so...
