# 5.62 A certain airplane has two independent alternators to provided electrical power. The probability that a given

alternator will fail on a 1-hour flight is .02. What is the probability that (a) bath will fail? (d) Neither will fail? (c) One or the other will fail? Show all steps carefully. 5.70 The probability is 1 in 4,000,000 that a single auto trip in the United States will result in a fatality. Over a lifetime, an average U.S. driver takes 50,000 trips.
