    2. A box contains n = g + b + m pancakes, where g, b, and m are positive integers. Of the n
    pancakes, g of them are golden brown on both sides, b of them are brown on both sides, and m of them are

    of it; that side is brown. What is the probability that the other side is also brown? (Write your answer in
    terms of g, b, m,


    3 .I tell you that, for two events A and B, P(A \ B) = 0.3, P(B | A) = 0.5, and that A and
    B are independent. For each statement, say “True”, “False”, or “Can’t Tell”, and give a reason for your
    answer.
    (i). A and B are mutually exclusive
    (ii). A and A [ B are independent
    (iii). P(B) = P(A | B)
    (iv). P(A | B) > P(B | A)
    (v). P(B) </=P(A)
