Question

The probability that a student passes a class is p(P) = 0.55. The probability that a student studied for a class is p(S) = 0.53. The probability that a student passes a class given that he or she studied for the class is p(P / S) = 0.71. What is the probability that a student studied for the class, given that he or she passed the class (p(S / P))? Hint: Use Bayes' theorem. (Round your answer to two decimal places.) p(S / P) =

Answer #1

**GIVEN:**

The probability that a student passes a class

The probability that a student studied for a class

The probability that a student passes a class given that he or she studied for the class

**TO FIND:**

The probability that a student studied for the class, given that he or she passed the class = ?

**FORMULA
USED:**

The formula for Bayes' theorem is given by,

**CALCULATION:**

The probability that a student studied for the class, given that he or she passed the class is given by,

**Thus the probability that a
student studied for the class, given that he or she passed the
class is .**

An irregular student is taking two courses microeconomics and
econometrics. Probability that she passes microeconomics exam is
0.70; econometrics 0.65 and both of the courses is 0.55.
Find the probability that she passes microeconomics or
econometrics exams.
Find the probability that she fails both of the exams.
If she passed microeconomics exam what is the probability that
she passes econometrics exam?

The probability that a student of Computer science passes a
programming test is 2/3 and the probability that he passes in both
programming and statistics test is 14/45. The probability that he
passes at least one test is 4/5.

Two students from FRST 231 have the following probabilities of
passing this midterm:
Probability of Student #1 passing = 0.8
Probability of Student #2 passing = 0.7
Probability of Student #1 passing given that Student #2 has passed
= 0.9

The probability that a randomly chosen student studied and did
well on the quiz is 0.3. The probability that a randomly chosen
student studied is 0.6. Given that a randomly chosen student
studied, what is the probability that he or she did well on the
quiz?

In Mr. ERIZ’s class, the probability of student who likes
Mathematics subject is 0.5 and the probability who likes both
Mathematics and Statistics subjects is 0.25.
If one student is chosen at random, what is the probability
that this student likes Statistics given that he/she also like
Mathematics subject?
If the probability of students who likes Statistics is 0.45,
are the events ‘like Mathematics subject’ and ‘like Statistics
subject’ independent? Justify your answer. (4
marks)
Are the events ‘likes Mathematics’...

Here is a simple probability model for multiple-choice tests.
Suppose that each student has probability p of correctly
answering a question chosen at random from a universe of possible
questions. (A strong student has a higher p than a weak
student.) The correctness of answers to different questions are
independent. Jodi is a good student for whom p = 0.83.
(a) Use the Normal approximation to find the probability that
Jodi scores 78% or lower on a 100-question test. (Round...

The probability that a student passes Biology is 0.75 and the
probability that the student passes English is 0.82. The
probability that a student passes both subjects is
0.62. Find the probability that a student passes only
Biology.
An experiment is conducted to determine whether intensive
tutoring (covering a great deal of material in a fixed amount of
time) is more effective than paced tutoring (covering less material
in the same amount of time). Two randomly chosen groups are tutored...
