Problem 10
A large research hospital has accumulated statistical data on its patients for an extended period. Researchers have determined that patients who are smokers have an 18% chance of contracting a serious illness such as heart disease, cancer, of emphysema, whereas there is only a .06 probability that a nonsmoker will contract a serious illness. From hospital records, the researchers know that 23% of all hospital patients are smokers, while 77% are nonsmokers. For planning purposes, the hospital physician staff would like to know the probability that a gives patient is a smoker if the patient has a serious illness.

Problem 12
the senate consist of 100 senators, of whom 34 are republicans and 66 are democrats. A bil to increase appropriations is before the senate. thirty-five percent of the democrats and 70% of the republicans favor the bill. the bill needs a simple majority to pass. using a probability tree, determine the probability that the bill will pass.

Problem 14
A metropolitan school system consists of three districts – north, south, and central. The north district contains 25% of all students, the south district contains 40% of all students, and the central district contains 35%. A minimum competency test was given to all students. 10% of the north district students failed, 15% of the south district students failed, and 5% of the central district students failed.
A – develop a probability tree showing all marginal, conditional, and joint probabilities
B – develop a joint probability table.
C – What is the probability that a student selected at random failed the test
