Question

Factories A, B and C produce computers. Factory A produces 2
times as many computers as factory C, and factory B produces 5
times as many computers as factory C. The probability that a
computer produced by factory A is defective is 0.016, the
probability that a computer produced by factory B is defective is
0.031, and the probability that a computer produced by factory C is
defective is 0.052.

A computer is selected at random and it is found to be defective.
What is the probability it came from factory A?

A certain manufacturer produces a cars at two factories labeled
A and B . 10% of the cars produced at factory A are found to be
defective , while 5% of the cars produced at the factory B are
defective . If the factory A produced 200,000 cars per year and
factory B produced 300,000 cars per year compute the following a.

A factory has in it four machines, A, B, C, and D that produce
Smart Pencils.
Machine A produces 40% of the factory's output with a 6%
defective rate.
Machine B produces 30% of the factory's output with a 5%
defective rate.
Machine C produces 20% of the factory's output with a 4%
defective rate.
Machine D produces 10% of the factory's output with a 3%
defective rate.

Three factories F1, F2 and F3 respectively produce 25%,
35% and 40% of the total number of electrical parts intended for
the assembly of a machine. These factories respectively produce 1%,
2% and 3% of defective parts.
We notice : The event A : "the part is produced by the F1
factory"
The event B : "the part is produced by the F2
factory"
The event C : "the part is produced by the F3 factory"
The event D : "the...

A canning factory produces 5,000 containers a day. Machine A
produces 3,000 of these packages, of which 5% are defective and
Machine B produces the remaining 2,000 packages, of which 8% are
defective.
A package is randomly selected and found to be defective. What
is the probability that it was produced by machine B?

A company has 2 machines that produce widgets. An older machine
produces 23% defective widgets, while the new machine produces only
8% defective widgets. In addition, the new machine produces 3 times
as many widgets as the older machine does. Given a randomly chosen
widget was tested and found to be defective, what is the
probability it was produced by the new machine?

A factory production line is manufacturing bolts using three
machines, A, B and C. Of the total output, machine A is responsible
for 25%, machine B for 35% and machine C for the rest. It is known
from previous experience with the machines that 5% of the output
from machine A, 4% from machine B and 2% from machine C is
defective. A bolt is chosen at random from the production line and
found to be non - defective. What...

In a factory, machine X produces 66 % of the daily output,
machine Y produces 11 % of the daily output and machine Z produces
23 % of the daily output. It is known that 9 % of machine X's
output is defective, 8 % of machine Y's output is defective and 7 %
of machine Z's output is defective. One day, an item was inspected
at random and found to be defective.

Problem 8.
A company that manufactures shoes has three factories. Factory 1
produces 25% of the
company's shoes, Factory 2 produces 60%, and Factory 3 produces
15%. One percent of the
shoes produced by Factory 1 are mislabeled, 0.5% of those produced
by Factory 2 are
mislabeled, and 2% of those produced by Factory 3 are mislabeled.
If you purchase one pair of
shoes manufactured by this company, what is the probability that
the shoes are mislabeled?

In a certain factory, Machine A makes 50% of the components,
with 1 in 15 being defective. Machine B produces 25%, with 1 in 10
being defective. Machine C produces the rest, with 1 in 20 being
defective.
(a) Complete the probability table for this scenario using the
given template.
(b) What is the probability that a defective component is
produced?
(c) If a component is selected at random and found to be
defective, what is the probability it was...
