Hello,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

i've been wondering about the following. If only this is information is given:

"each 10 days, the probability that machine A fails is 10%, after which the machine A receives

maintenance"

is it correct to say that each 5 days the probability is 10%/10= 1%?
