Unformatted text preview: the probability that there is a connection between A and C is (1p ) 2 +(1p ) 2(1p ) 4 . Similarly, the probability that there is a connection between C and B is 2(1p ) 2(1p ) 4 . ThereFore, the probability that there is a connection between A and B is ( 2(1p ) 2(1p ) 4 ) 2 = 18 p 2 + 8 p 3 + 14 p 432 p 5 + 24 p 68 p 7 + p 8 . Answer: the probability in question is ( 2(1p ) 2(1p ) 4 ) 2 . 1...
