A person goes to his office everyday. He has a single umbrella. When he is home and the

umbrella is home, he can choose to bring it. He will certainly do so if it is raining, but must

decide what to do if is not raining, as it may rain in the afternoon. A similar decision must be made in the

afternoon when he is heading home. Suppose that if it rained yesterday afternoon (this morning), but not

this morning (this afternoon), the probability that rains this afternoon (tomorrow morning) is q. On the

other hand, if it did not rain yesterday afternoon (this morning) nor today (this afternoon), the chance it

rains this afternoon (tomorrow morning) drops to r. If it is raining on a given afternoon (morning), it will

rain the following morning (same evening) with probability p, irrespective of what happened before.

(a) Model the policy bring the umbrella only when it rains" as a Markov chain by defining the state space

and transition probabilities.

(b) What percentage of the time is the employee going to be wet?
