At a certain stage of a criminal investigation, the inspector in-charge is 60% convince of the guilt of a certain suspect. Suppose now a piece of evidence that shows the criminal has brown hair is uncovered. If the inspector in-charge is convinced that the suspect is not guilty then there is 20% chance that he/she has brown hair. What is the probability that the inspector in-charge is convinced that the suspect is guilty given he/she has brown hair?

Is the function f (x) = |x^2 - x| differentiable at x = 2. If yes find it’s derivative.
 
 
Yes fuction will be differentiable at x =2. which can easily be seen by graph of the function. First draw the graph of y = x2-x and then take mode. Derivative will be = 2x-1 at x= 2...
