    The time between surface finish problems in a galvanizing process is exponentially distributed with a mean a 40 hours. A single plant operates three galvanizing lines that are assumed to operate independently.

    a) What is the probability that none of the lines experience a surface finish problems in 40 hours of operations?
    b) What is the probability that all three lines experience a surface finish problem between 20 and 40 hours of operation?
    c) Why is the joint probability density function not needed to answer the previous questions?
