Fault Tree Probability

Consider a fault tree with an AND gate under the top event. The first tier contains four failure events with respective failure probabilities of 0.005, 0.002, 0.01, and 0.0001.

a. What equation should you use to compute the probability of the top event?
b. Using the equation, what numerical value do you get for the top event probability?
c. For the top event, what is the probability of the complimentary event (i.e., success probability)?
