The ABC manufacturing company purchases a certain part from two suppliers (A supplier & B supplier). The parts received from the suppliers are used to produce the company’s major product. The parts received from the suppliers are either defective or good parts. The A supplier provides 80% of all parts. Given that a part is from the A supplier, there is 2.5% probability that the part is defective. Given that a part is from the B supplier, there is a 1% chance that the part is defective.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

a) If a defective part is found, what is the probability that it is from supplier B?

>>>(.025*.2)?

b) What is the probability that the company’s major product is defective?

>>>(.025*.2)+(.8*.01)?
