Each of these processes operates independently and has a probability of success for each student. If the five probabilities of success which accompany these processes are 95%, 90%, 99%, 98%, and 99% respectively, what is the "reliability" of the entire process from the student's perspective?  That is, what is the probability that all five will work allowing the student to successfully complete the registration?  Calculate your result to 4 decimal places (0.xxxx).
