A doctor is studying the relationship between high blood pressure and heartbeat abnormalities in her patients. She tests a random sample of her patients and nds that: 40% have high blood pressure; of those with high blood pressure, 60% have an irregular heartbeat; of those with an irregular heartbeat, 80% have high blood pressure. For a randomly chosen person, What portion of the patients selected have an irregular heartbeat? Answer: 30% De ne events : H=high blood pressure, I=irregular heartbeat. P [ H ] = 40% , P [ I | H ] = 60% , thus P [ I H ] = P [ H ] P [ I | H ] = 24% ; P [ H | I ] = P [ I H ] P [ I ] = 24% P [ I ] = 80% , thus P [ I ] = 30% . 2. An insurance agent o ers his clients auto insurance, homeowners insurance and life insurance. The purchases of the three products are mutuall y independent . The pro le of the agent's clients is as follows: 55% of the clients have auto insurance; 45% of the clients have homeowners insurance; 60% of the clients have life insurance. Calculate the percentage of the agent's clients that have more than one insurance product. Answer: 55 De ne three events as A, H and L. P [ A ] = 55% , P [ H ] = 45% , P [ L ] = 60% . The required probability is N 4 + N 5 + N 6 + N 7 = P [ A H L ]+ P [ A H L ]+ P [ A H L ]+ P [ A H L ] . Since the three events are mutually independent, P [ A H L ] = 0 . 55 . 45 (1- . 6) = 0 . 099 , P [ A H L ] = (1- . 55) . 45 . 6 = 0 . 1215 , P [ A H L ] = 0 . 55...
