PROLOGUE Please read the following instructions: Answers without supporting evidence carry little weight.
Calculations without a deﬁnite answer to the problem carry little weight. Nothing is to be written on the section of the page reserved for the
statement of the problem. The answer(s) to the problem is(are) to be given (in the form of ab—
breviated English sentences) in the section of the page reserved for the
answers. Calculations, or justiﬁcations, for your answer(s) should not
be on the same side of the page as the statement of the problem. The calculations (justiﬁcations) should be written starting on the back
side of the page on which the problem is stated. Although the calculations (or justiﬁcations) need not be written as
complete sentences of English, nevertheless it should be obvious to the
reader What you are calculating (justifying). Beware that blatantly
false or nonsensical statements will signiﬁcantly lower your grade. The student is expected to check the given answer(s) and calculations. It is recommended that the student read all the problems in the exam—
ination before attempting to ﬁnd the solutions. It is not required that Problem 1 should be the ﬁrst problem attempted. Failure to follow the above instructions may lower your grade. After reading the instructions initial the following statement: I have read the above instructions . . . . . . . . . . . . . .. Problem 1 A woman purchased a $50,000, 1yr term life insurance policy for $500.

machine a is 1% defective, for machine ﬂ it is 1.5%, for machine 7 it is 1.75%
and for machine 6 it is 2%. If an item is selected at random and found to be
defective, What is the probability that it was produced by machine 7? W
