a businessman goes to hotels x,y,z 20%,50%,30% of the time respectively.it is known that 5%,4%,8% of the rooms in x,y,z hotels have faculty plumbings.what is the probability that businessman’s room having faulty plumbing is assigned to hotel Z?

The probability that the businessman goes to hotel X is P(X) = 0.20.2

The probability that the businessman goes to hotel Y is P(Y) = 0.50.5

The probability that the businessman goes to hotel Z is P(Z) = 0.3

Suppose AA is the event of all the faulty plumbings, then it results in

P(A/X)=0.05 P(A/Y)=0.04 P(A/Z)=0.08

The Probability that faulty plumbing is assigned to hotel Z is P(Z/A)

P(Z/A)=(P(Z)P(A/Z))/P(X)P(A/X)+P(Y)P(A/Y)+P(Z)P(A/Z)

P(Z/A)=(0.3*0.08)/(0.2*0.05+0.5*0.04+0.3*0.08)

= 0.024/0.1+0.02+0.024

=0.024/0.054

=24/54

=5/9

Hence, the Probability that faulty plumbing is assigned to hotel Z is

4/9
