This question has to do with school.

I'm trying to understand whether I'm doing things right, not find a direct answer to the problem. Comments containing direct answers won't be chosen as solutions to this question.


Nine months after delivery, a fault is detected in the software of a product that analyzes mRNA using the Stein–Röntgen reagent. The cost of fixing the fault is $ 18,900. The cause of the fault is an ambiguous sentence in the specification document. Approximately how much would it have cost to correct the fault during the analysis phase?
My Response is:

18,900/3 = 6300

Answer: $6,300


Suppose that the fault in Problem 1.6 had been detected during the implementation phase. Approximately how much would it have cost to fix then?
My Response is:

Using Figure 1.4 with 132 More Recent Hewlett-Packard Projects::

Implementation: 34%+29%=63

63       21
--- = --------
         6,300

63 * 6300 / 21 = 18,900

Answer: $18,900

question 2  Not enough information. Fig 1.4 is talking about the total cost of a project. there is no connection given between the total cost of the project and the cost to fix the initially discusses error.

Actually I can connect analysis and implementation.

Anyway, thank you for your help.
