2 (1) (20pts) Seventy percent of the light aircraft that disappear while in flight in a certain country are subsequently discovered. Of the aircraft that are discovered, 60% have an emergency locator, whereas 90% of the aircraft not discovered do not have such a locator. Suppose a light aircraft has disap- peared. a) If it has an emergency locator, what is the probability that it will not be discovered ? b) If it does not have an emergency locator, what is the probability that it will be discovered ?

3 (2) (20 pts) Consider this experiment: I throw two (fair and independent) dice, and observe the sum of the two numbers. I keep throwing until I see a sum of either 7 or 8, then I stop. So an example of an outcome is (3 , 5 , 8), another example is (9 , 5 , 3 , 2 , 9 , 7), yet another example is (8). (Warning: do not mix up this problem with the one in the sample exam.)
