Question

A manufacturing company employs two devices to inspect output for quality control purposes. The first device is able to accurately detect 99.3% of the defective items it receives, whereas the second is able to do so in 99.7% of the cases. Assume that four defective items are produced and sent out for inspection. Let X and Y denote the number of items that will be identified as defective by inspecting devices 1 and 2, respectively. Assume that the devices are independent.

a)Determine E(X)

b)Determine V(Y|X=2).
