1. a. 10% out of 100% failed A or 10/100
3% of 100% failed A & B or 3/100
3% that failed A(10%) also failed B or 3/10

b. 12% out of 100% failed B
3% out of 100% failed A & B or 3/12

c. failed A - 10%
failed B - 12%
sub total 22%(-3% counted double-failed both)
= 19% total

d. 100%-19% that failed =81% chance product did not fail.
