company manufacturing a car is based (United States or not United States). Based
on the data collected, the probability that the new car needed a warranty repair is
0.04, the probability that the car was manufactured by a U.S. based company is 0.60
and the probability that the new car needs a warranty repair and was manufactured
by a U.S. based company is 0.025. Construct a contingency table to evaluate the
