In addition, it estimates that 15% of employees who had lost-time accidents last year will experience a lost-time accident during the current year. a. What percentage of the employee will experience a lost-time accident in both years? b. What percentage of the employee will experience a lost-time accident over the two-year period (to 1 decimal)? - 01.2% Explanation (0.08*0.15) = 0.012 ~ 1.2% 13.8% Explanation 0.08 + 0.07 - 0.012 = 0.138 or 13.8% A conditional probability is computed as - ?

What is the conditional probability of a request for additional information given that the bid will ultimately be successful (to 2 decimals)? c.
