Reliability

1) Given the following component reliabilities of a simple system consisting of 3 components,Find the reliability of the system (an electrical Current will travel from pt A to B successfully

C1 C2 C3
A---.996----.990----.860----B (Series system)

2) Given the parallel arrangement of the some components determine the reliability of the system (an electrical current will travel from pt A to Pt B

.996
A--.990--B
.860

3) Which arrangement (1 or 2 above ) would you use to build the system and why would you choose the arrangement you chose?
