Default June 12 Question

What better day to restart the question of the week
than June 12, the day on which the Baseball Hall of Fame was dedicated
in Cooperstown, New York (June 12, 1939), and the day 100 years earlier,
when Abner Doubleday is said to have invented the game.

The question can be found at

Default What about G2?

Prof. Broverman,

One quick question on this week's (6/19) sample question. I am not sure how you could conclude that P(B2 intersection G3) = P(B2 intersection G1'). Does not G1' inlcude G2 (a surveyed individual ranked Germany second) as well? Please advise. Thanks!

Hokensuri,

Perhaps it wasn;t made clear in the statement of the question,
but the idea is that each individual ranked the 3 teams without
ties.

SInce there are only 3 teams being considered, the event
B2 int G3 corresponds to Brazil ranked 2nd and Germany ranked 3rd
(and implies England ranked 1st). The event B2 in G1'
corresponds to Brazil ranked 2nd and Germany not ranked 1st,
which is the same as Brazil ranked 2nd and Germany ranked 3rd.
It is true that G1' on its own consists of the event that Germany is
ranked 2nd or 3rd. but the intersection of B2 and G1' eliminates G2
(since we are assuming no ties in the ranking).

Prof. Broverman,

Thank you for the clarification. It perfectly makes sense now.
