Circuit Reliability program
I have this project about circuit reliability that I am quite confused about.
Sorry for the poor picture, but I'm not the greatest of photoshop artists. Here is the circuit:
Basically I have to write a program to calculate the expected reliability of the circuit, and I know I need to use structs.
I know I am going to have to use a loop something lke:
Success is getting through any one of the paths, either AD, BD, or CE.
I know that AD is going to be 72% successful, BD is going to be 67.5% successful, and CD is going to be 63% successful. I calculated that the probability of one of either A or B succeeding is 95%, and that the probability of getting through A or B and then D is 85.5%. And then to get through either ABD or CE is 94.635% chance of success.
I know I am going to have to set:
ab parallel = the chance ab is successful, etc etc etc (I don't feel like typing all of them out)
I also need to write a separate program to test the circuit reliability with random numbers as many times as the user requests.
As you can see, I have though about the project and some of the coding that needs to be done, but I really can't figure out how to start writing it.
TIA for any help.
