Unformatted text preview: APPM 4/5570 Solutions to Problems from Section 2.5 71. a. P ( B | A ) = P ( B ) = 1- . 7 = 0 . 3 If A and B are independent events then so are not A and not B . b. P ( A B ) = P ( A ) + P ( B )- P ( A B ) = . 4 + 0 . 7- (0 . 4)(0 . 7) = 0 . 82 (Note that P ( A B ) = P ( A ) P ( B ) by independence of A and B .) c. P ( A B | A B ) = P (( A B ) ( A B )) P ( A B ) With the help of a Venn diagram, we can see that ( A B ) ( A B ) = A B So, we have P ( A B | A B ) = P ( A B ) P ( A B ) We have already computed the denominator. As for the numerator, we use the fact that A and B being independent implies that A and B are independent, so P ( A B ) = P ( A ) P ( B ) = (0 . 4)(0 . 3) = 0 . 12 Hence, the answer is P ( A B | A B ) = . 12 . 82 . 1463 . 74. a. P ( both O ) = P ( first is O AND second is O ) indep = P ( first is O ) P ( second is O ) = (0 . 44)(0 . 44) = 0 . 1936 . b....
