# Answer to Question #99865 in Statistics and Probability for Linta

Question #99865
a company uses 3 machines A,B,C.propotion of products produced by the machine are .2,.48,.22 . the percent defective for each machines is 1% 2% and 3% of their individual output. a defective output is drawn from a days production.what is probability that it was not prpduced by A?.

Suppose E is the event of getting defected output.

Then from the question, we have:

@\$P(A)=0.2,P(B)=0.48,P(C)=0.22@\$

@\$P(E/A)=0.01,P(E/B)=0.02,P(E/C)=0.03@\$

Now, we need to find the probability that if the bulb is defective then it is not produced by A, that means it is produced by either B or C.

That is, we need to find @\$P(B/E)+P(C/E)@\$

Now,

@\$P(B/E)=(P(B)*P(E/B))/(P(A)*P(E/A)+P(B)*P(E/B)+P(C)*P(E/C)) @\$

@\$P(B/E)=(0.48*0.02)/(0.2*0.01+0.48*0.02+0.22*0.03)@\$

@\$=0.0096/(0.0020+0.0096+0.0066)@\$

@\$=0.0096/0.0182@\$

@\$=0.5275@\$

Now, similarly:

@\$P(C/E)=(P(C)*P(E/C))/(P(A)*P(E/A)+P(B)*P(E/B)+P(C)*P(E/C))@\$

@\$P(C/E)=(0.22*0.03)/(0.2*0.01+0.48*0.02+0.22*0.03)@\$

@\$=0.0066/(0.0020+0.0096+0.0066)@\$

@\$=0.0066/0.0182@\$

@\$=0.3626@\$

So, the probability that the if the output is defected then it was not produced by A will be equal to ,

@\$P(B/E)+P(C/E)=0.5275+0.3626@\$

@\$=0.8901@\$
