Probability

(a) A good example of a simple random walk with two reflecting barriers is the movement of an elevator in a 10 storey building. Once the elevator reaches the ground floor, it will have a 100% probability of going up, and when it reaches the 10th floor, it will have a 100% probability of going down. The elevator goes up and down at discrete intervals. Reflection at the barriers is represents the points when the elevator is at the ground and the 10th floors.

Bayesian Networks
BNs are graphical models that set probabilistic relationships among variables of interest. They depict the relationships between causes and effects. The BNs are strong knowledge representation and reasoning tool under conditions of uncertainty. The BNs are a directed acyclic graph having nodes and arcs with a conditional probability distribution linked for each node. Nodes stand for domain variables, and arcs between nodes stand for probabilistic dependencies. Set of nodes and a set of directed links between them must not form a cycle. Each node represents a random variable that can take…

In order to find the number of 6-number combinations out of 49 numbers, I need to consider that each number can be drawn only once and that the order in which they are drawn doesn’t matter. Then, I can conclude that when I am picking 6 numbers, my first choice can include any of 49 numbers available, second choice – any of 48 numbers available (one number is already drawn, so it is not available any more), third choice – any of 47 numbers available, fourth choice – any of 46 numbers available, fifth choice – any of 45 numbers available, sixth choice – any of 44 numbers available.
