A consulting firm submitted a bid for a large research project. The firm’s management initially felt they had a 50–50 chance of getting the project. However, the agency to which the bid was submitted subsequently requested additional information on the bid. Past experience indicates that for 75% of the successful bids and 40% of the unsuccessful bids the agency requested additional information.

- a. What is the prior probability of the bid being successful (that is, prior to the request for additional information)?
- b. What is the conditional probability of a request for additional information given that the bid will ultimately be successful?
- c. Compute the posterior probability that the bid will be successful given a request for additional information.

**a.**

To determine

Compute the probability of the bid being successful.

The given information is that there is a 50-50 chance of getting the project. From the past experience, 75% of the successful bids and 40% of the unsuccessful bids the agency requested additional information...

**b.**
