Section 2-6 2-100. 2-101. Because P( A B ) ≠ P(A), the events are not independent. P(A') = 1 - P(A) = 0.7 and P( A ' B ) = 1 - P( A B ) = 0.7 Therefore, A' and B are independent events. 2-102. If A and B are mutually exclusive, then P( A ∩ B ) = 0 and P(A)P(B) = 0.04. Therefore, A and B are not independent. a) P( B A ) = 4/499 and
P( B) = P( B A) P( A) + P( B A' ) P( A' ) = (4 / 499)(5 / 500) + (5 / 499)(495 / 500) = 5 / 500 2-103. Therefore, A and B are not independent. b) A and B are independent. 2-104. P( A ∩ B ) = 70/100, P(A) = 86/100, P(B) = 77/100. Then, P( A ∩ B ) ≠ P(A)P(B), so A and B are not independent. a) P( A ∩ B )= 22/100, P(A) = 30/100, P(B) = 77/100, Then P( A ∩ B ) ≠ P(A)P(B), therefore, A and B are not independent. b) P(B|A) = P(A ∩ B)/P(A) = (22/100)/(30/100) = 0.733 2-105...
