Assume that a patient is believed to have one of two diseases, denoted by D1 and D2 with P(D1)=0.40 and P(D2)=0.60 and that medical research has determined the probability associated with each symptom that may accompany the diseases. Suppose that given diseases D1 and D2, the probabilities that the patient will have symptom S1, S2 or S3 are as sollows:

After a certain symtom is found to be present, the medical diagnosis will be aided by finding the revised probability of each disease. Compute the posterior probability of each disease given the following medical findings:

a. The patient has symptom S1
b. The patient has symptom S2
c. The patient has symptom S3
d. For the patient with symptom S1 in part a), supposed we also find symptom S2. What are the revised probabilities of D1 and D2?
e. If the probabilities for D1 and D2 are 0.25 and 0.75, respectively, compute the revised probability in part d).

1.22) An oil executive has determined that the probability that this oil field contains oil is 0.6. Before starting the drilling she decides to order a seismological test to see if there is oil in the ground. Unfortunately, the test is not entirely accurate. It concludes that there is oil with probability 0.9 if there is indeed

A young engineer has invented holographic mobile phones and has approached a venture capital company to invest in it. The venture capital company considers the product to be an all or nothing product: either everyone will want one because everyone else has one or no one will want one because there will be no one to use it with.

Given:
1) Invest $10,000 in Stock "ABC".
2) The daily returns are normally distributed with a mean of 0% and a standard deviation of 1%.
Questions:
1) What is the probability that tomorrow's return on investment in ABC is exactly 0.9%?
2) Conditional on making a positive return tomorrow, what is the probability you make a

Experience has shown a company that the cost of delivering a small package within 24 hours is $14.80. The company charges $15.50 for shipment but guarantees to refund the charge if delivery is not made within 24 hours. If
