## Create an algorithm to determine the number of components N (each having given probability P) to reach a given reliability R.

Reliability (of systems) The reliability R of a system of N independent series components, each having Probability P is determined by:

R = P ´ P ´ P ´ P ´…´ P ´ P (where there are N Ps)

For example, consider a chain made of links each having a probability P of .99 of successfully withstanding a certain load. If 70 of these are connected together (N = 70), the probability of all the links successfully withstanding the load is:

R = 0.99´0.99´0.99´…´0.99 = 0.50

Create an algorithm to determine the number of components N (each having given probability P) to reach a given reliability R.

### Assess why it has proven so difficult to design an operating procedure which allows the European Court to effectively manage its case load.

‘The results so far achieved within the framework of Protocol No. 14 are encouraging, particularly as a result of the measures taken by the Court to increase efficiency and address….

### Evaluate whether the operation of human rights under the ECHR really does force public authorities to ‘act in ways that fly in the face of common sense’?

‘[I]n this country we are proud to stand up for human rights, at home and abroad. It is part of the British tradition. But what is alien to our tradition….
