The figure shown the schematic of a production process with machines $$A, B$$ and $$C.$$ An input job needs to be pre-processed either by $$A$$ or by $$B$$ before it is fed to $$C,$$ from which the final finished product comes out. The probabilities of failure of the machines are given as:
$${P_{\rm A}} = 0.15,\,\,{P_{\rm B}} = 0.05\,\,\& \,\,{P_C} = 0.1$$ Assuming independence of failures of the machines, the probability that a given job is successfully processed (up to the third decimal place) is _____.
