# A realistic estimate for the probability of any one engine failing on a flight is 1 in 14,000.

A realistic estimate for the probability of any one engine failing on a flight is 1 in 14,000. Use this probability to find the probabilities of 0, 1, 2, and 3 engine failures for a 3-engine plane and the probabilities of 0, 1, and 2 engine failures for a 2-engine jet. Because of the numbers involved, keep the number of decimal places to as many as possible. Put your data into the sample tables below:
Three Engine Jets
x
P(x)
0
1
2
3
Two Engine Jets
x
P(x)
0
1
2
Write a short report, as described in class, including the data, graphs if appropriate, and important characteristics AND conclusions of the data and experiment. Write sentences that could be understood by someone not necessarily versed in statistics or probability.
