(Activity):

Mr. X goes to office by Auto, Car, and train. The probabilities him travelling by these modes are 2/7, 3/7, 2/7 respectively. The chances of him being late to the office are 1/2, 1/4, 1/4 respectively by Auto, Car, and train. On one particular day, he was late to the office. Find the probability that he travelled by car.

Solution: Let A, C and T be the events that Mr. X goes to office by Auto, Car and Train respectively. Let L be event that he is late.

Given that P(A) = square, P(C) = square

P(T) = square

P(L/A) = 1/2, P(L/C) = square P(L/T) = 1/4

P(L) = P(A ∩ L) + P(C ∩ L) + P(T ∩ L)

="P"("A")*"P"("L"//"A") + "P"("C")*"P"("L"//"C") + "P"("T")*"P"("L"//"T")

= square * square + square * square + square * square

= square + square + square

= square

"P"("C"//"L") = ("P"("L" ∩ "C"))/("P"("L"))

= ("P"("C") * "P"("L"//"C"))/("P"("L"))

= (square * square)/square

= square
