Q. Of the students in a school, it is known that 30% have 100% attendance and 70% students who have 100% attendance attain A grade and 10% irregular students attain A grade in their annual examination. At the end of the year, one student is chosen at random from the school and he was found to have an A grade. What is the probability that the student has 100% attendance? Is regularity required only in school? Justify your answer.

Q. Maximise, Z = x + 2y

Subject to the constraints
