    Please tell if this is correct

    There are error in programs which have two parts Part A and Part B. P(error in A) = 0.13 P(error in B) = 0.38 P(program crash when error in A) = 0.6 P(program crash when error in B) = 0.692 P(prog crash when an error in both A and B) = 0.79 Q1)Your program crashed. Find P(error in both...

    Generalization of urn problem

    While simple urn problems - given x green and y black balls, whats the probability if we take 6 that 2 will be black etc. are easily solvable with hypergeometric and binomial distribution. Is there a distribution that solves it a general case for example: Given 1000 blue, 1200 green, 2000 red...

    conditional probability

    Hello, I have a list of products and for each product corresponds an RCA index as shown in the attached table. I would like to calculate for both products i and j the following conditional probability: Pr[RCA(i)>= 1 | RCA(j)>= 1 ] But I have not found a statistical method to calculate this...

    2D Conditional Probability

    Question X, Y are two independent random variables with cumulative distribution functions: F_X(x) = {0, x<0; x/3, 0<x<3; 1, x > 3} F_Y(y) = {0, y<0; y^2/16, 0<y<4; 1, y>4} Find P(X<2, Y<1| X<1, Y<3) Rationale I figured that P(X<2|X<1) = 1 because if X<1, then it follows that X<2. But I am...

    Conditional Probability Help.

    Helloooo Statisticians! I have a question that I believe I can solve but somehow I'm not getting the correct answer. So I'd really appreciate if anyone can point out my mistake for me. The question is: The grades of 1st year students were analysed. 70% of the top one quarter of the 1st year...

    conditional probability and trial of experiments

    Consider a medical test for a disease, D. The test mostly gives the right answer, but not always. Say its false-negative rate is 1% and its false-positive rate is 2%, that is, P(y | D) = 0.99; P(n | D) = 0.01; P(y | ¬D) = 0.02; P(n | ¬D) = 0.98. Assume that you perform the test 4 times in a...

    creating conditional probability distribution

    I have a system which visits two locations and collects signals every 10 seconds. It is well known that A causes B to occur but not all the time. So, I am trying to find a conditional probability distribution of B given A. The data looks like following: A B ----------...

    Conditional Probability

    I am trying to create a matrix of the conditional probabilities from this: Signal <- runif(100) PercChange <- abs((rnorm(100)/100)) signalt <- seq(0, 1, 0.05) abst <- seq(0, c(0.02:1), 0.0025) CondDistMat <- matrix(0, nrow = length(signalt), ncol = length(abst)) for(j in...

    Markov Chain probabilities

    I have an example that is solved on one of the pages of wikipedia related to markov chains. I want to know how the probabilities (in bold) are calculated (please show the steps/formulas) Example: Another example is the dietary habits of a creature who eats only grapes, cheese or lettuce...
