This can be seen directly or from the formula of conditional proba- bility: P (the first is spade | the second and the third are spades) = P ( all three are spades ) P ( the second and the third are spades ) = 13 3 / 52 3 13 2 / 52 2 = 11 50 P17 (a) P ( DC ) = P ( D ) · P ( C | D ) = . 36 · . 22 = . 0792 (b) P ( D | C ) = P ( DC ) P ( C ) = . 0792 . 3 = . 264 P18 (d) P ( V ) = P ( V I ) + P ( V L ) + P ( V C ) = P ( I ) · P ( V | I ) + P ( L ) · P ( V | L ) + P ( C ) · P ( V | C ) = . 46 · . 35 + . 30 · . 62 + . 24 · . 48 = . 4862 (or 48.62%) (a) P ( I | V ) = P ( IV ) P ( V ) = P ( I ) · P ( V | I ) P ( V ) = . 46 · . 35 . 4862 = . 331 ...
