- Suppose there are two full bowls of cookies. Bowl one has 10 chocolate chip and 30 sugar cookies, while bowl two has 20 of each. Our friend Fred picks a bowl at random, and then picks a cookie at random. We may assume there is no reason to believe Fred treats one bowl differently from another, likewise for the cookies. The cookie turns out to be a sugar cookie. How probable is it that Fred picked it out of bowl one?

Step 1

From the given information, number of bowls is 2, first bowl having 10 chocolate chip and 30 sugar cookies. The second bowl has 20 of each type.

Let *A* be the event that selecting cookie from first bowl 1 and *B* be the event selecting cookie from second bowl 2. *E* is the event that selecting sugar cookie.

The number of cookies in bowl 1=10+30=40

The number of cookies in bowl 2=20+20=40

Step 2

**The P(A), P(B), P(E/A) and P(E/B) is obtained below:**

The probability of selecting of bowl 1 is,

P(A) =1/2=0.50

The probability of selecting of bowl 2 is,

P(B) = 1/2 = 0.50

The probability that selecting sugar cookie from Bowl 1 is,

P(E/A)=30/40=0.75

The probability that selecting sugar cookie from Bowl 2 is,

P(E/B)=20/40=0.50

Step 3

**The probability that Fred picked it out of bowl one is obtained below:**

The required probabi...
