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

In an increasing gp the sum of the first and the last term is 66. The product of the second and the last but one is 128 and the sum of the sum of the terms is 126 ..then the no. Of terms in...
a+ar n-1 =66 ar*ar n-2 =128 a(r n -1)/(r-1)=63 solving 1 and 2 we get r n-1 =32 so r n =32r put it in equation 3 to get r=2

prove that : cos 4 180/16 +cos 4 540/16 + cos 4 900/16 + cos 4 1260/16 = 3/2
write cos(1260/16) = cos(90-180/16) = sin(180/16), and cos(900/16) = cos(90-540/16) = sin(540/16), you will get : cos 4 (180/16) + sin 4 (180/16) + cos 4 (540/16) + sin 4 (540/16) By...
