2.Hi, is it perhaps possible that I can get some assistance with the following question below? specifically b) and c)
cally b) and c) please?
The Air force receives 30% of its parachutes from company C1 and the rest from company C2. The probability that a parachute will fail to open is 0.0025 and 0.002, depending on whether it is from company C1 or C2, respectively.
a) What is the probability that a randomly chosen parachute will fail to open (rounded off to four decimals)?
b) If a randomly chosen parachute fails, what is the probability it came from company C1 (rounded off to four decimals)?
c) If a randomly chosen parachute fails, what is the probability it came from company C2 (rounded off to four decimals)?
3.I'm checking my answers for a practice ACT exam I did, and I am confused by this question on probability...
"As part of a probability experiment, Elliott is to answer 4 multiple-choice questions. For each question, there are 3 possible answers, only 1 of which is correct. If Elliott randomly and independently answers each question, what is the probability that he will answer the 4 questions correctly?"
Solving the question I keep getting 1/256. My reasoning is that each question has a 1/4 chance of being right if you guessed, so 1/4 x 1/4 x 1/4 x 1/4 = 1/256.
But my answer choices are as follows, with the correct answer being E:
Am I missing something? Or am I just completely solving this wrong?
