Probabilty of first component drawn defective = 0.1161

Probability of second component drawn defective = 0.1560

Step-by-step explanation:

Total component = 9

Defective component = 3

Non-defective component = 6

Probability of defective = 3/9

= 0.3333

Probabilty of non defective = 1-0.3333

= 0.6666

Probabilty of first component drawn is defective

= 9C1 (0.333) ¹ (0.6666) ^8

= 9 (0.3333) (0.0387)

= 0.1161

Probabilty of second component is defective

= 8C1 (0.3333) ¹ (0.6666) ^7

= 8 (0.3333) (0.0585)

= 0.1560
