Hey, can anyone give me some help?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I'm trying to calculate the time unavailable of a system due to a component failure over a certain period of time. I know the probability of failure of this component, the time to be considered (assume 1 year) and how long the component is unavailable for due to a failure.

How can i work out how long this component causes the system to be unavailable for?

Thanks,
