Statement of a problem № m40047


A distributor of outdoor yard lights has four suppliers. This past season, she purchased 40% of the lights from Franklin Lighting, 30% from Wilson & Sons, 20% from Evergreen Supply, and the rest from A. L. Scott. In prior years, 3% of Franklin’s lights were defective, 6% of the Wilson lights were defective, 2% of Evergreen’s were defective, and 8% of the Scott lights were defective. When the lights arrive at the distributor, she puts them in inventory without identifying the supplier. Suppose that a defective light string has been pulled from inventory; what is the probability that it was supplied by Franklin Lighting?
