for flaws such as microscopic holes. The proportion of bottles that actually have such a flaw is
only 0.0002. If a bottle has a flaw, the probability is 0.995 that it will fail the inspection. lfa
bottle does not have a flaw, the probability is 0.99 that it will pass the inspection. a) If a bottle fails inspection, what is the probability that it has flaw? b) Which of the following is the more correct interpretation of the answer to part (a)? i) Most bottles that fail inspection do not have a flaw.
ii) Most bottles that pass inspection do have a flaw. c) If a bottle passes inspection, what is the probability that it does not have a flaw?
d) Which of the following is the more correct interpretation of the answer to part (c)?
i) Most bottles that fail inspection do have a flaw.
ii) Most bottles that pass inspection do not have a flaw. e) Explain why a small probability in part a) is not a problem, so long as the probability in part

disease, is 0.02. A test is available to diagnose the disease. If a person has the disease, the
probability P1 that the test will produce a positive result is 0.95. If a person does not have the disease, the probability P2 that the test will produce a positive result is 0.01.
a. If a person tests positive, what is the probability that the person actually has the disease?
b. If a man tests negative, what is the probability that he actually has the disease (probability of false negative)?
c. A new diagnostic test is available with performance characteristics P1= 0.98 and P2 =0.10. Calculate the probabilities in b and c for the new test. How would you judge the reliability of
both tests for this disease, and which one is preferable in your opinion and based on your calculations? 01.4401/63 O : I/I FahdOMQ chiem fer:00: Lea;

battery and another that used two sizeD batteries. He had previously packed two 6V and four
size—D batteries in his camper. Suppose the probability that any particular battery works is p
and that batteries work or fail independently of one another. Our friend wants to take just one
flashlight. For what values of p should he take the 6V flashlight? Dzmolc 57 X; Mambo of 6Véaﬂwﬂs
