th
ed.), section 2.1: # 6, 8, 16
•
2.1 # 16: Consider again the shopper described in Exercise 4. On each purchase,
the probability that he will choose the same brand of toothpaste that he chose on
his preceding purchase is 1/3, and the probability that he will switch brands is
2/3. Suppose that on his ﬁrst purchase the probability that he will choose brand
A is 1/4 and the probability that he will choose brand B is 3/4. What is the
probability that his second purchase will be brand B?
