STAT400 Discussion sections Midterm 1 Practice Problems - Solution 1. a) Since A and B are disjoint, P ( A B ) = , and thus, P ( A B ) = P ( A ) + P ( B ). Therefore P ( A ) = P ( A B ) - P ( B ) = 0 . 5 - (1 - 0 . 7) = 0 . 2 . b) Note that P ( A B ) + P ( A B 0 ) + P ( A 0 B ) + P ( A 0 B 0 ) = 1. Thus, P ( A B 0 ) + P ( A 0 B ) + P ( A B ) = 1 - P ( A 0 B 0 ) = 1 - P ( A 0 ) P ( B 0 ) ( A and B are independent) = 1 - (1 - 0 . 6) × (1 - 0 . 7) = 1 - 0 . 4 × 0 . 3 = 0 . 88 c) Recall De Morgan’s law, ( A B ) 0 = A 0 B 0 . Then, P ( A 0 B 0 ) = 1 - P ( A B ) = 1 - { P ( A ) + P ( B ) - P ( A B ) } = 1 - (0 . 22 + 0 . 25 - 0 . 11) = 0 . 64 2. Let A be the event that we have one ace, two faces, and two other cards. We need to choose 1 ace out of 4 aces, two faces out of 3 × 4 faces, and two cards out of 52 - 4 - 12 remaining cards. Thus, P ( A ) = N ( A ) N ( S ) = ± 4 1 ²± 12 2 ²± 36 2 ² ± 52 5 ² = 0 . 06399 3. Define the following events; M = { Male } , F = { Female } , U = { Unemployed } . a) P ( M U ) = P ( U | M ) P ( M ) = 0 . 06 × 0 . 6 = 0 . 036 b) P ( U ) = P ( M U )+ P ( F U ) = P ( U | M ) P ( M )+ P ( U | F ) P ( F ) = 0 . 045 × 0 . 4+0 . 06 × 0 . 6 = 0 . 054 c) P ( M | U ) = P ( M U ) P ( U ) =
