Consider a student who has the choice to buy or not buy a textbook for a course. We’ll model this as a decision problem with one Boolean decision node, B, indicating whether the agent chooses to buy the book, and two Boolean chance nodes, M, indicating whether the student has mastered the material in the book, and P , indicating whether the student passes the course. Of course, there is also a utility node, U. A certain student, Sam, has an additive utility function: 0 for not buying the book and -$100 for buying it; and $2000 for passing the course and 0 for not passing. Sam’s conditional probability estimates are as follows: P(p|b, m) = 0.9 P(m|b) = 0.9 P (p|b, ¬m) = 0.5 P (m|¬b) = 0.7 P (p|¬b, m) = 0.8 P (p|¬b, ¬m) = 0.3
You might think that P would be independent of B given M, But this course has an open- book final—so having the book helps.
a. Draw the decision network for this problem. b. Compute the expected utility of buying the book and of not buying it.
c. What should Sam do?

Problem 1 - hashing we would like to use initials to locate an individual. for instance, mel should locate the person mark e. lehr. note: this is all upper case. generate a hash function for the above using the numbers on your telephone. you know, each letter has a number associated with it, so examine your telephone keypad. generate 512 random 3 letter initials and take statistics on a linked list array size 512 to hold this information report how many have no elements, 1 element, 2 elements, does this agree with the hashing statistics distribution?

In deadlock avoidance using banker’s algorithm, what would be the consequence(s) of: (i) a process declaring its maximum need as maximum possible for each resource. in other words, if a resource a has 5 instances, then each process declares its maximum need as 5. (ii) a process declaring its minimum needs as maximum needs. for example, a process may need 2-5 instances of resource a. but it declares its maximum need as 2.
