a) of an ace, given that a diamond was turned

b) of an ace, given that a club was turned

c) of a heart, given that an ace was turned

d) of a club, given that a king was turned

e) Explain why it is true that P(A/C)=P(C/A)

After completing a through d, I thought I did them correctly unil I reached to e. Here are the answers I got: a) 2/5 b)2/5 c)1/5 d)1/5

**economyst**, Wednesday, November 7, 2007 at 9:11amHummm, I do not agree with your answers a-d.

a) given that a diamond was turned, it must have been an ace or king. So for a) I get 1/2.

b) given that a club was turned, it must have been a king. So for b) I get a zero probability.

Now then, notationally, does P(A/C) mean probability of an Ace given a club was turned. If so, P(A/C)=0, and P(C/A)=0
