The probability that a student who completed the homework failed the test is 0.211.

Step-by-step explanation:

The probability of an event E is the ratio of the favorable number of outcomes to the total number of outcomes.

The conditional probability of an event A given that another event B has already occurred is:

Denote the events as follows:

P = a student passes the test

F = a student fails the test

X = a student completes the assignment

Y = a student does not completes the assignment

From the information provided the summary table is as follows:

P            F         Total

X         15           4           19

Y          2            6            8

Total      17          10          27

Compute the probability that a student completed the assignment and failed the test as follows:

Compute the probability that a student completed the assignment as follows:

Compute the probability that a student failing the test given that the student completed the assignment as follows:

Thus, the probability that a student who completed the homework failed the test is 0.211.
