hi Corey,

I also use a similar approach as yours for problem 3. I am just wondering whether we should include the binomial coefficient for the backmutation computing, becasue the data do not tell us which one has the backmutation.

btw we probably only need to consider T3, T4, T5, T6, and T8, as mentioned in the problem

In your solution, you say that a sequence of events are independent and that the probability of their union is therefore the sum of their probabilities. This is a consequence of the events being disjoint, not independent. This is an important distinction.
