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 sum to n terms of the series 1/(1+1^2+1^4)+ 2/(1+2^2+2^4) + 3/(1+3^2+3^4) +.........
The general term is t n = n/(1+n 2 +n 4 ) = ½ [1/(n 2 -n+1) – 1/(n 2 +n+1)] Also n 2 +n+1 = (n+1) 2 -(n+1)+1. So, the summation may be written as ½ [1/1 2 -1+1) – 1/(2 2 -2+1)] + ½ [1/(2 2...

Prove that, If y = Sin -1 x, x ∈ (–1, 1) then dy/dx =1/√(1-x 2)
y = Sin -1 x ⇒ x = sin y dy/dx=cosy dy/dx=(dx/dy) -1 =1/cosy=1/ √(1-sin 2 y) =1/√(1-x 2 )
