Sally has caught covid but doesn’t know it yet. She is testing herself with rapid antigen kits which have an 80% probability of returning a positive result for an infected person. For the purpose of this question you can assume that the results of repeated tests are independent. 

a) If sally uses 3 test kits what is the probability that at least one will return a positive result? 

b) In 3 tests, what is the expected number of positive results?

c) Sally has gotten her hands on more effective tests, these ones have a 90% probability of returning a positive result for an infected person. If she tested herself
twice with the new tests, how many positive results would she expect to see?

2. A commercial jet aircraft has four engines. Each engine has independent reliability of     92% For safe landing, at least 2 engines of an aircraft need to function       
a. Compute the probability that an aircraft can land safely           
b. If the probability of safe landing must be 98.3%  compute the minimum required  reliability of each engine assuming two engines min out of 4 have to function         
c. If the reliability cannot be improved beyond  92% find the minimum number of engines which are required for safe landing, using probability of b above for safe landing          
d. Which is a better approach to safety? Look at answers to b and c above. Having 2 engines more reliable or increasing the number of engines? Discuss in numbered points bem.
