Thus far I have solved part a by solving for the probability that the entire system works, denoted P(E) where E is the event that the entire system works, then subtracting that from 1; this gave me the result P(E') = 0.2224 (where E' is the complement of E). I am just having trouble solving part b.

I have found that P(C'|E') = [P(C')xP(E'|C')]/P(E') = P(C'

**n**E')/P(E') where

**n**is read "intersect". I really do not see where to go from here though. I have values for P(C') and P(E') but no values for P(E'|C') or P(C'

**n**E'). Any help would be very much appreciated. Thank you in advance.
