Thks Bob,as soon as you get the answer you can post us how to do it...

• mathematic - ,

Yeah, Bob. Don't be mean.
Anyways, I'm relevantly sure thet the first answer is 100%, and the second one is 50%.

• mathematic - ,

Yeah Bob, this guy probably wants a job deciding whether a drug is safe or not. What harm is there if s/he is totally clueless about probability?

• mathematic - ,

I'm with Bob, the test and the course are very easy. I started it a week ago and I have already gotten a passing grade. If you try hard, you shouldn't have difficulty in passing the course. So just try to follow the Honor Code and do not cheat.

OK but really about part C I'm confused.
I think it should be 25% or 0.25 but it is wrong!!!!

• mathematic - ,

C is 1

• mathematic - ,

here are:
A=1
B=.5
C, I'm in the process to solve it, Definitely is not 1 or 0

after all, in real life you'll have to prove that you are able solve this kind of problems by yourself, or you better not say that you know probability!
