Container 1 has 8 items, 3 of which are defective. Container 2 has 5 items, 2 of which are defective. If one item is drawn independently from each container:

Find the probability distribution for X defined as the number of defective items drawn(Hint: You have to use both multiplicative and additive rules to find P(X=1), where as P(X=0) and P(X=2) can be found only by multiplicative rules).
