A hospital receives two-fifths of its flu vaccine from Company A and the remainder from Company B. Each shipment contains a large number of vials of vaccine. From Company A, 3% of the vials are ineffective; from Company B, 2% are ineffective. A hospital tests n = 25 randomly selected vials from one shipment and finds that 2 are ineffective. What is the conditional probability that this shipment came from Company A?© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com May 20, 2020, 5:57 pm ad1c9bdddf
