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

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

the normal to the curve at P(x,y) meets the x axis at G. If the distance of G from the origin is twice the abscissa of P , then the curve is a) ellipse b) parabola c) ellipse or hyperbola
 
 
solution: for any curve the equation of normal at ( X1, Y1) (y- y1) = -1/m (x- X1) {where m = slope of tengent or say dy/dx at (x1, Y1) } normal meets the X axis at G.. so ( 0 - y1) = -1/m...
