Military radar and missile detection systems are designed to warn a country of an enemy attack. A reliability question is whether a detection system will be able to identify an attack and issue a warning. Assume that a particular detection system has a .90 probability of detecting a missile attack. Use the binomial probability distribution to answer the following questions.

- a. What is the probability that a single detection system will detect an attack?
- b. If two detection systems are installed in the same area and operate independently, what is the probability that at least one of the systems will detect the attack?
- c. If three systems are installed, what is the probability that at least one of the systems will detect the attack?
- d. Would you recommend that multiple detection systems be used? Explain.

Expert Solution

**a.**

To determine

Find the probability that a single detection system will detect an attack.

**Calculation:**

A reliability question is whether a detection system can identify an attack and issue a warning. The probability of detecting a missile attack by a particular detection system is 0.90. The binomial probability distribution is used here...

Expert Solution

**b.**

To determine

Find the probability that at least one of the systems will detect the attack, if two detection systems are installed in the same area that operate independently.

Expert Solution

**c.**

To determine

Find the probability that at least one of the systems will detect the attack, if three detection systems are installed.

Expert Solution

**d.**

To determine

Explain whether multiple detection systems recommend can be used or not.
