You are given two coins $A$ and $B$ that look identical. The probability that coin $A$ turns up heads is $\frac{1}{4}$, while the probability that coin $B$ turns up heads is $\frac{3}{4}.$ You choose one of the coins at random and toss it twice. If both the outcomes are heads, what is the probability that you chose coin $B?$ $\frac{1}{16}$ $\frac{1}{2}$ $\frac{9}{16}$ $\frac{9}{10}$

Let $C_{n}$ be the number of strings $w$ consisting of $n$ $X's$ and $n$ $Y's$ such that no initial segment of $w$ has more $Y's$ than $X's.$ Now consider the following problem. A person stands on the edge of a swimming pool holding a bag of $n$ red and $n$ blue balls. He draws a ... $\frac{C_{n}}{\binom{2n}{n}}$ $\frac{n\cdot C_{n}}{(2n)!}$ $\frac{n\cdot C_{n}}{\binom{2n}{n}}$

Conditional probability
Oscar has lost his dog in either forest A (with a priori probability 0.4) or in forest B (with a priori probability 0.6). On any given day, if the dog is in A and Oscar spends a day searching for it in A, the conditional probability that he will ﬁnd the dog that day is 0.25. ... +(1/2)*0.15; but the answer given is=(0.5*0.4*0.25)+(0.5*0.6*0.15); what is wrong with my logic?
