Ex 13.1, 10 A black and a red dice are rolled. (a) Find the conditional probability of obtaining a sum greater than 4, given that the black die resulted in a 5. A black and a red dice are rolled Let us take first numbers to have been appeared on the black die and the second numbers on the red die, in order. S = {(1,1), .., (1,6), (2,1), , (2,6), (3,1), ., (3,6), (4,1), ...., (4,6), (5,1), .., (5,6), (6,1), .. ., (6,6)} We need to find the probability of obtaining a sum greater than 4, given that the black die resulted in 5 F : 5 appeared on the black die E: Sum of numbers greater than 4 We need to find P(E|F) Also, E F = {(5,5), (5,6)} So, P(E F) = 2 36 = 1 18 P(E|F) = ( ) ( ) = 2 36 6 36 = 2 6 = 1 3 Required probability is 1 3 Ex 13.1, 10 A black and a red dice are rolled. (b) Find the conditional probability of obtaining the sum 8, given that the red die resulted in a number less than 4. We need to find the probability of obtaining the sum 8, given that the red die resulted in a number less than 4 F : number on red die is less than 4 E : sum of numbers is 8 We need to find P(E|F) Also, E F = {(5, 3), (6, 2)} So, P(E F) = 2 36 P(E|F) = ( ) ( ) = 2 36 18 36 = 2 18 = Required probability is 1 9
