Unformatted text preview: t least 2 out of its 3 components are working. Calculate the probability that the sub-system is functioning. 12 b If the entire system consists of two such identical sub-systems A and B, and they operate independent of each other. The operation of the whole system requires that both A and B work properly. Calculate the probability that the entire system works. 8 Solution: a This is obviously a Bernoulli trial problem with p = 0:8, q = 0:2, and n = 3. PrA functioning = Pr 2 out of 3 components work...
