Question

To obtain a certain job, a student must pass a certain exam. The exam may be taken many times. If the student passes on the first try, she gets the job. If not, she still gets the job if at some times the number of passing attempts exceeds the number of failures by two. If at any time the number of failures exceeded the number of passes by two, she is not allowed to ever take the exam again. The probability of the student passing on each particular try is ½. What is the probability she gets a job.

answer is 5/8 please show the process

Answer #1

Candidates for a certain job have to pass two screening stages.
The probability of a candidate’s passing the first stage is 0.5. If
a candidate passes the first stage, he/she has a probability of
passing the second stage and getting the job. In a certain year
there were 3 candidates for the job. Denote by X the number of
candidates who pass the first stage, and Y the number of candidates
who pass the second stage. a) Develop the joint...

Elaine need to pass a certification exam. She has two tries to

the first attempt, then she has a 0.6 chance of passing on her
second attempt. The increase in the pass rate is due to her having
a better idea of the kinds of test questions that are asked.

An engineering student has determined that her probability of
passing the Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) exam is 0.35. Assuming
that this probability remains constant each time she takes the
