Question

3- An emergency evacuation route for a hurricane-prone city is served by two bridges leading out of the city. In the event of a major hurricane, the probability that bridge A will fail is 0.005, and the probability that bridge B will fail is 0.012. Assuming statistical independence between the two events, find: / The probability that the two bridges fail in the event of a major hurricane. / The probability that at least one bridge fails in the event of a major hurricane.
