The Breaker's Manufacturing Company makes 80% of a particular sensor, the Cartin Company makes 15% of them, and the Flutes Company makes the other 5%. The sensors made by Breaker's have a 4% defect rate, the Cartin sensors have a 6% defect rate, and the Flutes sensors have a 9% defect rate. If a sensor is randomly selected from the general population of all sensors, what is the probability that it is defective, given that it was made by Breaker’s?
