MATH 203- Recommended Exercises 2 - Fall 2010

Solve the following textbook exercises • 2.15 : In this exercise the definition of ” odds that an event will occur ”‘ is given. However correct the following typographic error in the problem : Change A to a and B to b. • 2.75 • 2.74 • 2.19 • 2.25 • 2.27 • 2.29 : Again there is a typographic error. You can easily guess the correct form of the equation as P (A1 ∪ A2 ∪ · · · ∪ An ) = 1 − {1 − P (A1 )}.{1 − P (A2 )} · · · {1 − P (An )} • 2.33 • 2.42 • 2.63 • 2.76 • 2.77 • 2.101

PROBLEM 1. If P (A) > 0 show that P (A ∩ B) ≥ P (A ∩ B|A ∪ B) PROBLEM 2. If A ⊂ B, express the following probabilities as simply as possible P (A|B), P (A|B ), P (B|A), P (B|A ).
