A snack food company produces potato chips on three different production lines. Line 1 produces 20% of the total output, Line 2 produces 30%, and Line 3 produces the balance. Each line is sampled to ensure the salt content is within the proper range. Historically, 4% of Line 1’s output does not meet the salt standards, 3% of Line 2’s fails to meet the standards, and 2% of Line 3’s does not meet the salt standards. A random bag of potato chips was selected and did not meet the salt standards. What is the probability that the chips were produced in Line 3?
