Exercise 14.12 [multivaluedprobitexercise]
The probit distribution defined on page probitpage describes the probability distribution for a Boolean child, given a single continuous parent.

How might the definition be extended to cover multiple continuous parents?

How might it be extended to handle a multivalued child variable? Consider both cases where the child’s values are ordered (as in selecting a gear while driving, depending on speed, slope, desired acceleration, etc.) and cases where they are unordered (as in selecting bus, train, or car to get to work). (Hint: Consider ways to divide the possible values into two sets, to mimic a Boolean variable.)
