I have a question about the following sentence and would appreciate if someone could explain how to read out the conditional probability here.

*"Each microwave produced at factory A is defective with probability 0.05".*

I understand the sentence as the intersection ##P(Defect \cap Factory A)## rather than the Conditional Probability.

But for solving the problem, the Conditional Probability ##P(Defect|Factory A)## is needed.

Reading the sentence, what clue is there that it is a conditional probability and not an intersection?
