1.  Suppose that in a town, everybody drives a Chevy, Ford or Honda.  A survey indicates that of the current Chevy 
drivers, 25% will buy a Ford and 30% will buy a Honda next time.  Of the current Ford drivers, 35% will buy a Chevy and 
15% will buy a Honda next time.  Of the current Honda drivers, 20% will buy a Chevy and 45% will buy a Ford next time. 
a.  What is the transition matrix for this problem?

b.  If someone owns a Ford now, find the probability that his second car from now (not his next car, but the one 
after that) will be a Honda.
