The company in Exercise 6.50 has disciplined a worker who was suspected of pilfering tools and supplies from the plant. The very next day, the production line broke down 9 times. Management has confronted the union with accusations of sabotage on the line, but the union president says it’s just a coincidence that the production line happened to break down so many times the day after the worker was disciplined. Using probabilities appropriate to your discussion, comment on how much of a coincidence this high number of breakdowns would appear to be.
