Let B be the event that the purchasher has a basic model, let D be the event that the purchaser has a deluxe model. Let E be the event that the purchaser has an extended warranty. We are given that P ( B ) = 0 . 40 (and hence we know that P ( D ) = 0 . 60) and we are given that P ( E  B ) = 0 . 30 , P ( E  D ) = 0 . 50 . So, we know that P ( E  B ) = 0 . 70 , P ( E  D ) = 0 . 50 . The answer, by Bayes Rule, is then P ( B  E ) = P ( E  B ) P ( B ) P ( E  B ) P ( B ) + P ( E  D ) P ( D ) = (0 . 30)(0 . 40) (0 . 30)(0 . 40) + (0 . 50)(0 . 60) . 2857...
