Student name:__________________________________ 2 Problem 1. (10+10+5 = 25 points) Suppose during the holidays you are planning a ski trip to Lake Tahoe. As the map below shows, past Sacramento there are two main roads to Lake Tahoe: Interstate 80 (I80) and Highway 50 (H50). Suppose from past experience we know that, if there is a storm, then there is probability 0.3 that I80 will be closed and probability 0.2 that H50 will be closed. Furthermore, if H50 is closed due to a storm, then the probability that I80 is also closed is 0.6. In case of no storm, each of these roads could be closed due to major accidents, re- pair or other causes. Assume such closure events for the two roads are statistically inde- pendent with probabilities 0.01 for I80 and 0.02 for H50 on a given day. a)
