The probability of getting a defective tyre `= 200/5000`

                                                           `= 0.04`

Therefore the probability of getting a good tyre `= 1-0.04`

                                                                    `= 0.96`

Therefore the probability of all four tyres can be good

                                 `= 0.96 xx 0.96 xx 0.96 xx 0.96`

                                 `= 0.8493`

Therefore, there is 0.8493 chance of all four tyres are good.
