Millions of Americans are subjected to drug testing in the workplace.  The tests are not always reliable.  A false positive rate of 5% is considered to be a conservative estimate.  Suppose that there are 20 employees in your company, which tests its workers weekly.  1) What is the probability of no false-positives for this week’s test?
