1. Redundancy in Aircraft Radios-The FAA requires that commercial aircraft used for flying in instrument conditions must have two independent radios instead of one. Assume that for a typical flight, the probability of a radio failure is 0.0035.

What is the probability that a particular flight may be safe with at least one working radio? Why does the usual rounding rule of three significant digits not work here? Is this probability high enough to ensure flight safety?
