This question already has an answer here:
I'm given this problem:
Consider there are two applicants for a job. One of the applicants is a man, and it is known that he was born on a Wednesday. What is the probability that a second applicant is also a man?
I don't get the question. It seems that being a man for two applicants is independent regardless of the birthday or gender of the first applicant. Moreover, when there is no data, how can I calculate a probability!
Please guide me on how can I answer this question or similar ones.
