P(A)=P(B)=P(C)=1/3. If A happens, the probability for the warden to tell him Beppe will be executed is 1/2. If C happens, the probability for the warden to tell him Beppe will be executed is 1. With the assumption, P(B)=0. With Bayes’ Rule, P ( A | W ) = P ( W | A ) P ( A ) P ( W | A ) P ( A )+ P ( W | B ) P ( B )+ P ( W | C ) P ( C ) = 1 / 2 × 1 / 3 1 / 2 × 1 / 3+0+1 × 1 / 3 = 1 / 3 3. 10 Points To find partitions of 40 into 4 parts, imagine that we have 40 items in a line, and three markers 1, 2, 3.
