Multiplication Rules (Probability)

In probability theory, the multiplication rule states that:

There is a 0.01 (1%) probability that a seal will fail if the joint is not coated with a sealing compound before assembly. The proportion of joints that are not coated is 0.05 (5%).

What is the probability that a seal will fail.

 P(A|B) Probability that the seal will fail if not coated 0.01 P(B) Probability the seal will not be coated 0.05 0.01 x 0.05 =0.0005

 Probability is included in the MiC Quality Advanced Statistics course. Try out our courses by taking the first module of the Primer in Statistics free of charge.
