Answer: Part II. Case Study The case of the Carribean Criminals
This week Patty Madeye is helping the script-writers on a case of embezzlement at a local law practice, Dewey, Cheatem, and Howe. [Get it?]
The characters of the “Patty Madeye Mysteries” will be investigating a case of embezzlement planned and executed by a team of 2 people who work at the law firm. The story goes that the male/female pair of criminals are both married (to other people) but involved in a love-affair with each other. They have stolen over \$2 million in funds from company accounts and have disappeared to somewhere in the Carribean.
Your job will be to use your knowledge of probability and counting methods to help the writers identify possible candidates to be written into the script.

The writers think that the male embezzler should be one of the partners of the law firm, indicated in this list by “Attorney-Partner”. For the female embezzler, they have chosen someone who is listed as a “Specialist”. Specialists are employees of the firm who offer subject-matter expertise in specific areas such as real estate or accounting.
a. (4 points) How many different choices do we have for the male/female team of embezzlers? [Remember: both members of the team are married.]
Answer: Explanation:
b. (4 points) How would this answer be different if the 2 members of the male/female team don’t have to be married? In other words, they could be either single or married.
Answer: Explanation:

Task #2: (4 points) The writers want to include an accomplice in the story – that would be someone else in the firm who knew that the pair were stealing from the company.
If the accomplice is selected at random from the remaining employees, what is the probability that the accomplice is female?
Answer: Explanation:

Task #3 (8 points) – Who should be the “whistle-blower”?
The writers of the show have asked you to think of a “plot-twist” that can be solved using probability. For example, let’s say that someone claims that there’s a 50% chance that the “Attorney-Partner” embezzler is male but that would only be the case if there were an equal number of males and females.
Using the evidence from above and what you have learned about probability, in a well-structured essay, present a problem and its solution. Be creative!!
Answer:
Requirements- Write your essay in this document – do not save it in a separate file.- You must clearly state your position in 2-3 well-structured paragraphs using proper grammar, spelling, and sentence structure.- This is not an “opinion” question – you must offer evidence from the data or your knowledge of probability.- Don’t forget to explain how the problem can be solved with probability. (Remember, the script writers haven’t taken this class yet).
