Question

# A coin is so weighted such that the probability of it showing H(head) is 23and that of T(Tail)is 13. When it is tossed. If head appears, then a number from the first 9 naturals is selected at random, otherwise a number from 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 will be selected. Let E be the event of getting an even number, then

Solution

## The correct options are A P(EH)=49 B P(ET)=25 C P(E)=58135 D P(HE)=2029 Since there are 4 even number among 1 to 9, it follow that P(EH)=49 Again, since there are 2 even number among 1 to 5, it follow that P(ET)=25 Therefore (A) and (B) are correct, now E=(H∪T)∩E=(H∩E)∪(T∩E) This implies P(E)=P(H∩E)+P(T∩E)=P(H)P(EH)+P(T)P(ET)=23×49+13×25=58135 By Baye’s theorem P(HE)=P(H)P(EH)P(H)P(EH)+P(T)P(ET)=23×4923×49+13×25=2029
