Accepted Solution

A:

Answer:Step-by-step explanation:Given that a consumer organization estimates that over a 1-year period 20% of cars will need to be repaired once, 9% will need repairs twice, and 4% will require three or more repairs. No of cars -2Each car is independent of the other.Prob that a car does not need repair [tex]= 1-0.20-0.09-0.04 = 0.67[/tex]a) Prob (neither will need repair) =[tex]0.67*0.67=0.4489[/tex]b) Prob (both will need repair) =[tex]0.33*0.33=0.1089[/tex]c) Prob (atleast one will need repair) =1- neither repair =1-0.4489=0.5511
