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

Let A be any matrix such that A2=0 matrix then does it implies A is a zero matrix?
Not at all. Consider A = 0 1 0 0 It is not zero but A^2=0. Amit Jain IITD AskIITians
Amit Jain 6 months ago
Not necessarily. If A 2 = 0, then such matrix A is known as Nilpotent Matrix. e.g. A = 0 1 0 0 This matrix A is not equal to zero but A 2 will be equal to zero.

Find the remainder when (x+1)^n is divided by (x-1)^3. Askiitians tutors please help. No one replied when i posted this question before. This question is of rmo. Please give the solution.
When we divide polynomial P(x) by quotient Q(x) and get remainder R(x), this means: P(x) = D(x)*Q(x) + R(x) Order of the polynomials: P is of order n, Q of order 3, D of order (n - 3) and R...

If any polynomial P(x) is divided by Q(x) and if it generates remainder f(x), and quotient is g(x), then P(x) = Q(x) . g(x) + f(x) therefore (x+1)^n = (x-1)^3 . g(x) + f(x) here f(x) would...
