## Homework Statement

Team 0 and Team 1 have played 1000 games and Team 0 has won 900 of them.[/B]

**When the two teams play next, knowing only this information, which team is more likely to win?**

## Homework Equations

P(X,Y) = P(YlX) x P(X) = P(XIY) x P(Y) (Not Sure)

## The Attempt at a Solution

Hi,

I am trying to solve it using Bayes Theorem. Kindly guide me is it correct or not?

**Probability of Team 1 winning = 100/1000 = 0.1**

**Probability of Team 2 winning = 900/1000 = 0.9**

**Probability of Team 1 losing = 900/1000 = 0.1**

**Probability of Team 2 losing = 100/1000 = 0.1**

**Let X represents the Probability of Team winning the match**

**Let Y represents the Probability of Team losing the match**

**P(X=1|Y=0) = P(X=0|Y=1)**
