a. The probability of 2 or more defects if
P(2 or more defects)=P(2 defects)+P(3 defects),
since one item cannot habe both 2 and 3 defects. So,
P(2 or more defects)=f(2)+f(3)=0.4
b.Similarly,
P(1 or more defects)=f(1)+f(2)+f(3)=.11
Therefore, a phone is more likely to have 0 defects.

A possible recall of chart-topping car in the world is now a major concern of its manufacturer. The issues of this car are from defects on its systems. 0.40 failure is probable from the brake system, a probability of 0.20 from power-transmission failure, 2 0.10 probability from fuel system malfunctioning, and a defect of 0.40 in some parts of the car. What is the probability that there are no defects in either the brakes or the power-transmission system if these two systems fail with 2 probability of 0.10 simultaneously?
