```					                 Bayes Theorem
If the events A1,A2,.......Ak form a partition of sample
space S, that is the events Ai are mutually exclusive and
their union is S, and if B is any other event of S such that it
can occur only if one of the Ai occurs then for any i.
Bayes Theorem
Q: # In a bolt factory, machines A, B and C manufacture 25, 35 and 40
percent of the total output respectively. Of their outputs, 5, 4, 2
percent, respectively are defective bolts. A bolt is selected at random
and found to be defective. What is the probability that the bolt came
from machine A? B? C?.
Q:# A manufacturing firm employs three analytical plans for the design
and development of a particular product. For cost reasons all three
are used at varying times . In fact plans 1,2 and 3 are used for 30%,
20% and 50% of the products respectively. The “defect rate “ is
different for the three procedures as follows
P(D|p1)=0.01 P(D|P2)=0.03 P(D|P3)=0.02 if a random product was
observed and found to be defective , which plan was most likely
used and thus responsible?
Q: # in a college 4 % of men and 1% of women are taller than 6 feet.
Further more 60% of the students are women. Now if a student is
selected at random and is taller than 6 feet , then what is the
probability that the student is a women?
