A student either knows the answer or guesses on a multiple choice test.
Let
be the probability the student knows the answer and
be the probability the student guesses.
Assume a student that guesses will be right with a probability of
. (where
is the number of multiple choice alternatives.
What is the probability that the student knew the answer to a question given that it was answered correctly?
I am pretty sure this problem uses Bayes Thm, but I am not sure where to begin. Any help please? Thank you.
