Answer any one question from Q7 and Q8
7 (a) A coin was chosen at random and tossed. The probability that a fair coin was chosen and 'head' as an outcome is 1/3. The probability that a fair coin was chosen and 'tail' as an outcome is also 1/3. The probability that an unfair coin was chosen and 'head' as an outcome is 1/12. The probability that an unfair coin was chosen and 'tail' as an outcome is 1/4. Find the conditional probability that
