Six candidates for a new position of vice-president for academic affairs have been selected. Three of the candidates are female. The candidates’ years of experience are as follows.
Suppose one of the candidates is selected at random. Define the following events:
A = person selected has 9 years experience
B = person selected is a female
Find P(A / B).
From your data, you have 6 candidates, with 2 having 9+ years of experience and 3 being female. This should give you the probabilities of A and B. Assuming you want to know what is the probability that the candidate will be both experienced and female, multiply the two probabilities.
I hope this helps. Thanks for asking.
