If a given day is wet, the probability that the following day will also be wet is 0.8. If a given day is dry the probability that the following day will be dry is 0.6. Given that wednesday of a partciular week is dry work out the following;
a)thursday and friday of the same week are wet days
b)friday of the same week is a wet day
c) In one season there were 44 cricket matches, each played over three consecutive days, in which the first and third days were dry. For how many of these matches would you expect the second day was wet?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1It is a conditional probability. And the given condition is that Wedenesday is wet.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1So, the probability that Thursday will be wet is (10.6) And if Thursday will be wet the probability Friday will also be wet is 0.8. S0, for (a) it is (106)*0.8

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0which formula did you use like P(A/B)=P(A intersection B)/P(B) isnt this the formula for conditional probability?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Because we are given: P(next day is dry/today is dry)=0.6 P(next day is wet/today is wet)=0.8

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Isnt it (10.6)*(10.8)*44

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1It is ( Dry,Wet, Dry)/{(Dry,Dry,Dry) + (Dry, Wet , Dry))} *44 1*(10.6) * (10.8)/{(1*0.6*0.6) + (1* (10.6) * (10.8) }*44 =8
