What is the probability that (a) his first basket occurs later than the
sixth shot; (b) his first basket occur on his fourth shot and his second
basket occur before his eight shot?
2. Suppose that jury members decide independently, and that each with
probability
p
(0
< p <
1) makes the correct decision. If the decision
of the majority is final, which is preferable, a threeperson jury or a
single juror. (Hint: you want to maximize the probability of a correct
decision; the answer depends on
p
).
