(1) What is the probability of a paint defect?

What is the probability of a paint defect which includes an improper amount of paint?

  • statistics -

    Because the probabilities add to greater than 1.0, some of them must be joint events (too much enamel and uneven, for instance)

    Prob (paint defect)=1-Pr(nodefects)=.58

    Pr(improper)=.45/.58
