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?

                                        Hello student,
Please find the answer to your question below
P(C)=P(C∣G)P(G)+P(C∣Gc)P(Gc)=(1)(0.6)+(0.2)(0.4)=0.68
This is then used to update the inspector's belief in the suspect's guilt posterior to discovering that the suspect does have that characteristic.
P(G∣C)=(P(G)P(C∣G))/P(C)
=1(0.6)/0.68
=0.882
So the probability that the inspector in-charge is convinced that the suspect is guilty given he/she has brown hair is 0.882

given that ax+by=3,ax 2 +by 2 =7,ax 3 +by 3 =16,ax 4 +by 4 =42.Find ax 5 +by 5 value.a,b,x,y are positive integers
 
 
Hello student, Please find the answer to your question below We have ax 3 + by 3 = 16, so (ax 3 + by 3 )(x + y) = 16(x + y) and thusax 4 + by 4 + xy(ax 2 + by 2 ) = 16(x + y) 42 + 7xy = 16(x...

absolutely correct. x(x – 2) + 3(x – 2) = x^2 – 2x + 3x – 6 = X^2 + x – 6 Hope that you both have understood now
