Question

A device has a constant failure rate of 0.7/year.

The failure rate tells us what is the probability of failure of the device, i.e. the time rate of change of the probability of failure. It is 0.7/year, meaning there is a 70% chance the device will fail after one year. The probability of failure in the year Y is calculated as:

F(Y)=1-R(Y)...
