P ( C | A ) represents the probability that a person with blood type A is from ethnic group 3. (c) Let D = { ethnic group 1 selected } . P ( D | B 0 ) = P ( D B 0 ) P ( B 0 ) . Now P ( B ) = 0 . 008 + 0 . 018 + 0 . 065 = 0 . 091 and so P ( B 0 ) = 1 - 0 . 091 = 0 . 909. So P ( D | B 0 ) = P ( D B 0 ) P ( B 0 ) = 0 . 082 + 0 . 106 + 0 . 004 0 . 909 = 0 . 192 0 . 909 = 0 . 211 . 2.47 [10 pts (2,2,2,2,2)] (a) We know P ( A ) = 0 . 5, P ( B ) = 0 . 4, and P ( A B ) = 0 . 25. So P ( B | A ) = P ( A B ) P ( A ) = 0 . 25 0 . 5 = 0 . 5 . This means that 50% of Visa card holders have a MasterCard.
