6. Three work shifts A. The percentage of defective shirts produced by the shifts is 3%. 4% and 5% respectively. what is the probability that the household subscribes to (a) both newspapers [3] (b) only one newspaper [2] (c) neither newspaper [2] 7. what is the probability that it is defective? [3] (c) Find the probability that the shirt was produced by work shift A given that it was found to be defective. 80% of those households who subscribe to the Standard also subscribe to the Beacon. In a certain country there are two daily newspapers. 30% and 20% of the total production of shirts at factory. the Standard and the Beacon. [3] (b) If a shirt is chosen at random. (a) Show this date on a tree diagram showing the probability on all branches. It is estimated that 40% of the households subscribe to the Standard and 45% subscribe to the Beacon. B and C produce 50%. [3] . If a household is selected at random.
