Consider the bar code in Example 2-12. Suppose that all 40 codes are equally likely (none is held back as a delimiter). Determine the probability for each of the following:
(a) The second bar is wide given that the first bar is wide.
(b) The third bar is wide given that the first two bars are not wide.
(c) The first bar is wide given that the last bar is wide.
Step 1 of 4:
A bar code system consists of tight and wide bars separated by either wide or limit space.
Each character contains nine elements (five bars and four spaces). The code for a character starts and ends with a bar and space in each character.
