A three-stage rocket has the following probabilities for failure: The probability for failure at stage one is 1/6; at stage two,1/8; and at stage three,1/10. What is the probability of a successful flight, given that the first stage was successful? -------------------------------------- P(success|1st stage success) = P(all succeed)/P(1st stage succeed) = [(5/6)*(7/8)*(9/10)]/[5/6] = (7/8)(9/10 = 63/80 ============================================ Cheers, Stan H.
