Question

Please I need a step by step approach to these problem. Thank you help_outlineImage TranscriptionclosePLEASE I NEED A DETAILED AND A STEP BY APPROACH TO THIS QUESTION, 1 HAVE NO STRONG BACKGROUND IN PROB- ABILITY SO PLEASE HELP ME (1) Assume that 0 < P(A) 1.

Step 1

(a) Let us assume that P(A), P(B) > 0.

We know P(A|B) = P(A∩B)/P(B).----------------(1)

We need to show that P(A|B) + P(Ac|B) = 1

From the fig below, it can be seen that,

B = (A∩B)∪( Ac∩B )

=> P(B) = P(A∩B) + P(Ac∩B)

=>P(A∩B)/P(B) + P(Ac∩B)/P(B) = 1

Step 2

P(B) P(B) 1 => P(A|B) P(AC|B) = 1 (b) In general, the equation P(A|B) + P(AC|B) = 1 is not true when P (B) 0.i.e. 0 and P(AC n B) = 0 = P(AC B)/P(B) (0} then P (B) If B 0, P(A n B) P(An B)/P(B) and P(AC|B) Then P(A|B) are undefined For example If a dice is tossed once, then what is the probability of getting 0 as an event Ans: Here let B getting 0. And P(B) = 0 fullscreen
