##### Bayer theorem of probability

 Statistics Tutor: None Selected Time limit: 1 Day

Use Bayes' theorem to find the indicated probability.

In the town of Maplewood a certain type of DVD player is sold at just two stores. 45% of the sales are from store A and 55% of the sales are from store B. 2.5% of the DVD players sold at store A are defective while 4.7% of the DVD players sold at store B are defective. If Kate receives one of these DVD players as a gift and finds that it is defective, what is the probability that it came from store A?

Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

probability of defective a=2.5%/45%

probabilty of defective b=4.7%/55%

probability that it is from a=(.025/.45)(.047/.55)=.00096.................................

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
