# Two Qubit problem

A two-qubit system was originally in the state $\frac{3}{4}|00\rangle-\frac{\sqrt{5}}{4}|01\rangle+\frac{1}{4}|10\rangle-\frac{1}{4}|11\rangle$ , and then we measured the first qubit to be 0 . Now, if we measure the second qubit in the standard basis, what is the probability that the outcome is 0 ?

If you measure the first qubit to be $0$, you are left only with two possible outcomes, i.e. $|00\rangle$ and $|01\rangle$ with probability amplitudes $\frac{3}{4}$ and $-\frac{\sqrt5}{4}$.
Since they have to be normalized, you divide both amplitudes by $\sqrt{(\frac{3}{4})^2 + (-\frac{\sqrt5}{4})^2}$.
Then you will have a new state with two state vectors and all you have to do is calculate the probability of measuring $|00\rangle$, which should be pretty trivial!
