letters follow g, we get a probability of 19/26.
2.58 (a) Let A = Defect in brake system; B = Defect in fuel system; P (A\u222aB) = P (A) +
P (B)\u2212 P (A \u2229 B) = 0.25 + 0.17\u2212 0.15 = 0.27.
(b) P (No defect) = 1\u2212 P (A \u222aB) = 1\u2212 0.27 = 0.73.
2.59 By Theorem 2.2, there are N = (26)(25)(24)(9)(8)(7)(6) = 47, 174, 400 possible ways
to code the items of which n = (5)(25)(24)(8)(7)(6)(4) = 4, 032, 000 begin with a vowel
and end with an even digit. Therefore, n

2.60 (a) Of the (6)(6) = 36 elements in the sample space, only 5 elements (2,6), (3,5),
(4,4), (5,3), and (6,2) add to 8. Hence the probability of obtaining a total of 8 is
then 5/36.
(b) Ten of the 36 elements total at most 5. Hence the probability of obtaining a total
of at most is 10/36=5/18.

2.64 Any four of a kind, say four 2\u2019s and one 5 occur in
(

)
= 5 ways each with probability
(1/6)(1/6)(1/6)(1/6)(1/6) = (1/6)5. Since there are 6P2 = 30 ways to choose various
pairs of numbers to constitute four of one kind and one of the other (we use permutation
instead of combination is because that four 2\u2019s and one 5, and four 5\u2019s and one 2 are
two different ways), the probability is (5)(30)(1/6)5 = 25/1296.

(b) The probability that all six purchasing the electric oven or all six purchasing the
gas oven is 0.007 + 0.104 = 0.111. So the probability that at least one of each

2.74 (a) ($4.50\u2212 $4.00)× 50, 000 = $25, 000;
(b) Since the probability of underfilling is 0.001, we would expect 50, 000×0.001 = 50
boxes to be underfilled. So, instead of having ($4.50 \u2212 $4.00) × 50 = $25 profit
for those 50 boxes, there are a loss of $4.00× 50 = $200 due to the cost. So, the
loss in profit expected due to underfilling is $25 + $200 = $250.
