Exercises 34, 36, and 38 (Ch. 5) p164

34. P(A1) = .20, P(A2) = .40, and P(A3) = .40. P(B1IA1) = .25. P(B1IA2) = .05, and P(B1lAe) = .10. Use Bayes’ theorem to determine P(A3 @ B1).

36. Dr. Stallter has been teaching basic statistics for many years. She knows that 80 percent of the students will complete the assigned problems. She has also determined that among those who do their assignments, 90 percent will pass the course. Among those students who do not do their homework, 60 percent will pass. Mike Fishbaugh took statistics last semester from Dr. Stallter and received a passing grade. What is the probability that he completed the assignments?
