There are three colored cookie jars. One jar is blue, another green and the last one pink. The blue jar contains 10 chocolate chip and 7 sugar cookies. The green jar contains 8 chocolate chip, 14 sugar and 11 peanut butter cookies. The pink jar contains 6 chocolate chip, 5 sugar and 9 peanut butter cookies. One of the three cookie jars is chosen at random. The probabilities that the blue jar, green jar, or pink jar will be chosen are 1⁄2 , 1⁄4 , and 1⁄4 , respectively. A cookie is then chosen at random from the chosen jar. What is the probability that the pink jar was chosen, if it is known that the cookie was a sugar cookie?
