Three horses A, B and C are in race. A is twice as likely to win  as B and B is twice as likely to win as C. what are their probabilities of wining if P(A)+P(B)+P(C) = 1
Asked by Bhawna | 01 Feb, 2020, 11:04: PM
let probability of winning of  C is "x"
probability of winning of B will be 2x
the probability of  winning of A  will be=  2*2x =4x
Also in this case of probability  x+2x+4x = 1
7x=1
So the x=1/7
Which means the probability for horse C will be 1/7
the probability of winning of horse B will be = 2/7
And the winning of probabilit of horse A will be = 2*2/7 = 4/7
