Question

A manufacturing company regularly conducts quality control checks at specified periods on the products it manufactures. Historically, the failure rate for LED light bulbs that the company manufactures is 8 %. Suppose a random sample of 10 LED light bulbs is selected. Complete parts (a) through (d) below

What is the probability that three or more of the LED light bulbs are defective?

The probability that three or more of the LED light bulbs are defective is?

Answer #1

Consider the random variable X which represent the number of bulbs. The random variable X follows binomial distribution

with P = 8% = 0.08, and n = 10

What is the probability that three or more of the LED light bulbs are defective ?

i.e. find P(X 3)

The probability mass function of the binomial distribution is as follows:

For X = 0

P(X = 0) = 0.4344

For X = 1

P(X = 1) = 0.3777

For X = 2

P(X = 2) = 0.1478

Therefore,

A manufacturing company regularly conducts quality control
checks at specified periods on the products it manufactures.

In one manufacturing company, it is known the probability of a
product pass the quality control test can only be 0.6, 0.2 or 0.1,
otherwise they are identified as defective. Considering occurrence
chance of 0.6 scenario is twice higher than the other
possibilities, if quality control center test products, what is the
probability that until a defective item has been found: is 0.6, 0.2
or 0.1 given they had to test 1, 2, 3, or 4 products?

Quality control is an important issue at ACME Company, which
manufactures light bulbs. To test the life-hours of their light
bulbs, they randomly sampled nine light bulbs and measured how many
hours they lasted: 378, 361, 350, 375, 200, 391, 375, 368,
321.
What is the median?

As a quality control manager, you are responsible for checking
the quality level of AC adapters for tablet PCs that your company
manufactures. You must reject a shipment if you find 5 defective
units. Suppose a shipment of 43 AC adapters has 9 defective units
and 34 nondefective units. Complete parts (a) through (d) below
assuming you sample 12 AC adapters.
a. What is the probability that there will be
no defective units in the shipment?
b. What is the...

The quality control manager at a light bulb factory needs to
estimate the mean life of a large shipment of light bulbs. The
standard deviation is 104 hours. A random sample of 64 light bulbs
indicated a sample mean life of 390 hours. Complete parts (a)
through (d) below.
Construct a 99 % confidence interval estimate for the population
mean life of light bulbs in this shipment.
c. Must you assume that the population light bulb life is
normally distributed?...

A manufacturing company produces 10,000 products a day. From
previous experience, quality control analysts estimate that 0.5% of
products manufactured have some kind of defect and cannot be sold.
The defective products are thrown away and treated as a loss. It
costs $1.00 to manufacture, distribute, and market each individual
unit, regardless of whether or not the product has a defect. The
unit retail price is $5.00, and each of the non-defective products
sells with probability 0.95.

You have been hired as the quality control office of a
pharmaceutical company that manufactures aspirin tablets. According
to the quality assurance protocol, your job is to do the following.
For each shipment of possibly thousands and thousands of aspirin
tablets, randomly select and test 24 tablets, then accept the batch
if there is only one or no tablet that doesn’t meet the test
specification. If, at the pharmaceutical company, the probability
that randomly selected tablet is defective is .04,...

Trowbridge Manufacturing produces cases for personal computers
and other electronic equipment. The quality control inspector for
this company believes that a particular process is out of control.
Normally, only 71% of all cases are deemed defective due to
discolorations.
1. If 8 such cases are sampled, what is the probability that
there will be two (2) defective cases if the process is operating
correctly
2. What is the probability that there will be more than three
(3) defective case?
