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

If a, b are natural numbers such that 2013 + a 2 = b 2 , then the minimum possible value of ab is Sol. (b - a) (b + a) = 2013 = 3 × 11 × 61 ( In what logic in their mind they split this ) ab...
Hello student, Please find the answer to your question below Given a 2 +2013=b 2 it can also be written as b 2 -a 2 =2013 by prime factorization we have b 2 -a 2 =3*11*61 so...
Find the greatest term in the expansion of (7-5x)^2 where x=2/3 Please explain the steps. Thankyou in advance.
Hello Student. Please find the solution (7-5x)^2 = 49 + 25x^2 – 70x so first term = 49 second term = -70*2/3 third term = 25 x^2 = 25*4/9 = 11.11 So 49 is greatest...

For a, b > 0, let 5a – b, 2a + b, a + 2b be in A.P. and (b + 1)2 , ab + 1, (a – 1)2 are in G.P. then compute (a–1 + b–1).
Hi, From the ap condition find one relation between a & b, which will come out as b=2a. Now use the gp condition and put the result from ap condition, you will get a equation in single...

the straight lines x+y=0, 3x+y-4=0 and x+3y-4=0 which is isosless equilateral right angle none
Since none of the lines are perpendicular therefore it is not a right angled triangle. now find the intersection points of x+y=0, 3x+y-4=0, x+3y-4=0, we get (2,-2),(-2,2) & (1,1) let...
