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

Find the number of integral points that lie exactly in the interior of the triangle with vertices (0,0) ,(0,21) ,(21,0) .
 
 
Hello student, Please find the answer to your question below The equation of the line joining (0, 21) and (21, 0) is x+y = 21 or y = -x+21. Thus 19, 18, ..., 0 integral points lying inside...

If p , q, n , l > 0 and the ratio of the roots of equation : lX^2 + nx + n = 0 be p:q then proove that p/q^1/2 + q /p^1/2 – n/l^1/2 = 0
 
 
Hello student, the ratio is p : q so let roots bept and qt. so pt + qt = - n/l => p + q = - n/(lt) and pqt^2 = n/l => pq = n/(lt^2) now (p/q)^1/2 + (q/p)1/^2 = (p + q)/(pq)^(1/2) =...

if a,b,c,d are positive real numbers such that a/3=a+b/4=a+b+c/5=a+b+c+d/6 then a/b+2c+3d
 
 
Let a/3 = a + b / 4 = a + b + c / 5 = a + b + c + d/ 6 = k then, a = 3k, b = k, c = k, d = k a/b + 2c + 3d = 3k/k + 2k + 3k = 3k/6k = 1/2

if period of function cos(nx).sin(5x/n) is 3 pi, then number of integral values of n are
 
 
cos(n(x+3Npi).sin(5(x+3Npi)/n)= cos nx . sin 5x/n, equating and solving equation gives us the values the integral values of n are±1,±3,±5,±15
