Comment on each of the following statements using the appropriate probabilities:
a. "If a bomber pilot has a
2% chance of being shot down on a given mission, a pilot flying 50 missions will be shot down with certainty."
b. "The probability that a given helicopter remains operable in a 3-hour desert sandstorm is 0.90. Therefore, the probability of successfully carrying out a 6-helicopter mission, if only 6 helicopters are available and such a storm occurs, equals 0.54."
