Probability

posted by KG

An assembly line has two inspectors. The probability that the first inspector will miss a defective item is 0.05. If the defective item passes the first inspector, the probability that the second inspector will miss it is 0.01. What is the probability of the event that a defective item will pass by both inspectors?

    If the events are independent, the probability of both/all events occurring is determined by multiplying the probabilities of the individual events.
