(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); This problem is in the section dealing with The Law of Total Probability and Bayes' Rule. I have no idea how to solve this, please give me a hint. A plane is missing and is presumed to have equal probability of going down in any of three regions. If a plane is actually down in regioni, let 1-(alpha i) denote the probability that the plane will be found upon a search of theith region,i= 1, 2, 3.

a) What is the conditional probability that the plane is in region 1 given that the search of region 1 was unsuccessful?

b) What is the conditional probability that the plane is in region 2 given that the search of region 1 was unsuccessful?

c) What is the conditional probability that the plane is in region 3 given that the search of region 1 was unsuccessful?
