Help Session II: Practice Problems 21.16 To save on expenses, Rona and Jerry agreed to carpool for traveling to and from work. Rona preferred to use the somewhat longer and more consistent Queen City Avenue. Although Jerry preferred the quicker expressway, he agreed with Rona that they should take the Queen City Avenue if the expressway had a traffic jam. The following payoff table provides the one-way estimate in minutes for traveling to and from work. Decision/State of Nature Expressway open (s1) Expressway jammed (s2) Queen City Avenue 30 30 Expressway 25 45 Based on the experience with traffic problems, Rona and Jerry agreed on a 0.15 probability that the expressway would be jammed. In addition, they agreed that weather seemed to affect the traffic conditions on the expressway. Let C = Clear, O = overcast, R = rain The following conditional probabilities apply. P(C|s1) = 0.8 , P (O|s1) = 0.2 P(C|s2) = 0.1, P(O|s2) = 0.3 a) Use Bayes’ theorem for probability revision to compute the probability of each weather condition and the conditional probability of the expressway open or jammed given each weather condition. b) Show the decision tree for the problem c) What is the optimal decision strategy, and what is the expected travel time?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
