Question: an accident victim will die unless in the next 10...

Question details

An accident victim will die unless in the next 10 minutes he receives some type A, Rh-positive blood, which can be supplied by a single donor. The hospital requires 2 minutes to type a prospective donors blood and 2 minutes to complete the transfer of blood. Many untyped donors are available, and 40% of them have type A, Rh-positive blood. What is the probability that the accident victim will be saved if only one blood-typing kit is available? Assume that the typing kit is reusable but can process only one donor at a time.
