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...
