This solution provides an introductory explanation of how to calculate a probability and the conditional distribution of the given variable.

##### Solution Preview

a) We shall note that the probability of obesity = 2 may be further divided into 3 subgroups, that is,

P(obesity = 2) = P(obesity = 2 and diabetes = 1) + P(obesity = 2 and diabetes = 2) + P(obesity = 2 and diabetes = 3) = 0.00 + 0.278 + 0.122 = 0.4.

Using the same reasoning as above, we complete the table.

Ob = 1 Ob = 2 Ob = 3 F(d)

Diab = 1 0.017 0.00 ...
