Hi all, While solving problems related to probability I got stucked with this problem: In some election 4 candidates A,B,C,D has the probability of being elected is 0.4,0.3,0.2,0.1 respectively.If the candidate C discard his candidateship just prior to the election ,then what will be the current probability of the remaining three? I thought a lot but couldn't find any way to relate the probability of C with others.I sensed the probability of others will increase but I'm unable to determine it.By the way,my knowledge is limited to topics like conditional probability,Bayes' Theorem.But I can't categorize the problem in any formula.If the problem is explained please remain in the scope of my knowledge. Or do I have to learn some new concept to solve this type of problem? Any help will be appreciated. Thanks.
