Suppose that when a job candidate comes to interview for a job at, say McDonald's, the probability that the candidate will want the job (A) after the interview is .68. Also, the probability that McDonald's wants the candidate (B) is .36. The probability P(A/B) is .88.
a.) Find P(A and B)
b.) Find P(B/A)
c.) Are events A and B independent? Explain.
d.) Are events A and B mutually exclusive? Explain.
e.) What would it mean to say A and B are mutually exclusive events in this exercise?
I will be glad to critique your thinking. Hopefully, you have learned something from previous answers provided to you.
