Let X t be the state of this person at time t , and X = 1. (1) What is the distribution of X 1 , i.e., what is the probability that X 1 = k for k = 1 , 2 , 3? (2) What is the distribution of X 2 ? (3) (Optional) What is the distribution of X 3 ? Problem 3: Suppose at any moment, the probability that there is re in a classroom is . If there is a re, the probability we hear the re alarm is .
