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 2CosA = x+1//x and 2CosB = y+1/y then find 2cos(A+B) (A) x/y +y/x (B) x/y-y/x (C) 2y/x (D) 2x/y
 
 
Solve these as quadratic equations in x & y so that you get x = cosA + i sinA & cosA – i sinA; y = cosB + i sinB & cosB – isinB If x = cosA + i sinA then 1/x = cosA – i sinA ; y = cosB + i...
