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,



•G: event that the suspect is guilty


•C: event that he possesses the characteristic of the criminal


•P(G|C) is ?


•P(G|C) = P(GC)/P(C)


= P(C|G)P(G) / [P(C|G)P(G) + P(C|Gc)P(Gc)]


= 1(.6)/[1(.6) + (.15)(.4)] ≈ .91



Thanks and Regards

No. of solutions of x,where x belongs to [0,2pie] and satisfies the equation, |sin a| +|cos a | = |sin x| where a is any real number. (Plz provide solution with explanation)
 
 
Solution: 2 Consider the left hand side of the equation and find its range. To do that let’s take its square ( |sin a| +|cos a |) 2 =sin 2 a+cos 2 a+|sin 2a| = 1 + |sin 2a| Since 0...
