Question A coach is training 3 players. He observes that the player A can hit a target 4 times in 5 shots, player B can hit 3 times in 4 shots and the player C can hit 2 times in 3 shots. From this situation answer the following:P(A) = Probability of A hitting the target = πŸ’/πŸ“ P(B) = Probability of B hitting the target = πŸ‘/πŸ’ P(C) = Probability of C hitting the target = 𝟐/πŸ‘ Question 1 Let the target is hit by A, B and C. Then, the probability that A, B and, C all will hit, is (a) 4/5 (b) 3/5 (c) 2/5 (d) 1/5P(all hit) = Probability A will hit Γ— Probability B will hit Γ— Probability C will hit = 4/5 Γ— 3/4 Γ— 2/3 = 𝟐/πŸ“ So, the correct answer is (c) Question 2 Referring to (i), what is the probability that B, C will hit and A will lose? (a) 1/10 (b) 3/10 (c) 7/10 (d) 4/10P(B and C will hit and A will lose) = Probability A will not hit Γ— Probability B will hit Γ— Probability C will hit = (πŸβˆ’πŸ’/πŸ“)"Γ—" πŸ‘/πŸ’ Γ— 𝟐/πŸ‘ = 1/5 Γ— 3/4 Γ— 2/3 = 𝟏/𝟏𝟎 So, the correct answer is (a) Question 3 With reference to the events mentioned in (i), what is the probability that β€˜any two of A, B and C will hit? (a) 1/30 (b) 11/30 (c) 17/30 (d) 13/30 P(any two will hit) = P(A will not hit) Γ— P(B will hit) Γ— P(C will hit) + P(A will hit) Γ— P(B will not hit) Γ— P(C will hit) + P(A will hit) Γ— P(B will hit) Γ— P(C will not hit) = (1βˆ’4/5)"Γ—" 3/4 Γ— 2/3 + 4/5 "Γ—" (1βˆ’3/4)Γ— 2/3 +4/5 "Γ—" 3/4 Γ— (1βˆ’2/3) = 1/5 "Γ—" 3/4 Γ— 2/3 + 4/5 "Γ—" 1/4 Γ— 2/3 +4/5 "Γ—" 3/4 Γ— 1/3 = 1/10+2/15+1/5 = πŸπŸ‘/πŸ‘πŸŽ So, the correct answer is (d) Question 4 What is the probability that β€˜none of them will hit the target’? (a) 1/30 (b) 1/60 (c) 1/15 (d) 2/15P(none will hit) = Probability A will not hit Γ— Probability B will not hit Γ— Probability C will not hit = (πŸβˆ’πŸ’/πŸ“) Γ— (πŸβˆ’πŸ‘/πŸ’)Γ—(πŸβˆ’πŸ/πŸ‘) = 1/5Γ—1/4Γ—1/3 = 𝟏/πŸ”πŸŽ So, the correct answer is (b) Question 5 What is the probability that at least one of A, B or C will hit the target? (a) 59/60 (b) 2/5 (c) 3/5 (d) 1/60P( at least one will hit) = P(exactly one will hit) + P(exactly two will hit) + P(all will hit) P(exactly one will hit) P(exactly one will hit) = P(A will hit)Γ—P(B will not hit) Γ— P(C will not hit) + P (A will not hit) Γ— P (B will hit) Γ— P (C will not hit) + P (A will not hit)Γ— P (B will not hit) Γ— P (C will hit) = 4/5Γ—(1βˆ’3/4)Γ—(1βˆ’2/3) +(1βˆ’4/5)Γ—3/4Γ—(1βˆ’2/3) +(1βˆ’4/5)Γ—(1βˆ’3/4)Γ—2/3= 4/5 "Γ—" 1/4 Γ— 1/3 + 1/5 "Γ—" 3/4Γ— 1/3 +1/5 "Γ—" 1/4 Γ— 2/3 = 1/15+1/20+1/30 = πŸ—/πŸ”πŸŽP(exactly two will hit) This is calculated in Question 3 P(exactly two will hit) = πŸπŸ‘/πŸ‘πŸŽ P(all will hit) This is calculated in Question 1 P(all will hit) = 𝟐/πŸ“Now, P(at least one will hit) = P(exactly one will hit) + P(exactly two will hit) + P(all will hit) = 9/60+13/30+2/5 = πŸ“πŸ—/πŸ”πŸŽ So, the correct answer is (a)
