Suppose that about 35% of students in school have used marijuana in the last year. In
order to preserve anonymity during surveys, a technique called randomized response is
often used. A student is approached and asked to ﬂip a coin but not show it to the
born in January to June (inclusive)?" If the coin is tails, the student answers the question:
"Have you used marijuana in the last year?" Because the interviewer does not know the
outcome of the coin ﬂip, the students' responses are conﬁdential. What is the probability
then that if a yes is received, the student used marijuana in the last year?
