(a) If you choose one part at random from the box, what is the probability that it is not defective?
Among the 10 parts, 2 are defective and 8 are not defective
S, P(select a non-defective part = 8/10 = 4/5

Answer: 4/5

-------------------------------------
(b) If you choose two parts at random from the box, without replacement, what is the probability that both are defective?
P(BOTH parts are defective) = P(1st part is defective AND 2nd part is defective)
= P(1st part is defective) x P(2nd part is defective)
= 2/10 x 1/9
= 2/90
= 1/45

Answer: 1/45\

Cheers,
Brent
