The BB Roadwatch service predict delays on a particular route with probability 2/5. However, their computer model is not completely accurate: when a delay is predicted, one actually occurs with probability 3/4; when a delay is not predicted, one occurs with probability 1/4. Given that you are delayed on this route, what is the probability it was predicted? Select one: a. 27/32 b. 2/3 c. 3/10 d. None of the other choices. e. 9/20
