While A1 has an error rate of 0.03 that of A2 is 0.02. A reservationform is selected at random from the total number of forms checked during a day and isdiscovered to have an error.

Probability that it is checked by a1=[0.03*55/100]/[0.03*55/100+0.02*45/100]
                                                 =1.65/2.55=11/17
probability that it is checked by a2=[0.02*45/100]/[0.03*55/100+0.02*45/100]
                                                  =0.9/2.55=6/17
