Question

A batch of 125 lightbulbs contains 13 that are defective. If
you choose 8 at random

(without replacement), what is the probability that

(a) None are defective?

(b) Exactly one is defective?

(c) More than 2 are defective?

whats needed

1) Define a random variable in words. (e.g. X = number of
heads observed)

2) Specify the distribution of the random variable including
identifying the value(s) of any

parameter(s). (e.g. X ∼ Binomial(10, 5))

3) State the desired probability in terms of your random
variable (e.g. P(X < 3)).

4) Calculate the desired probability (e.g. P(X < 3) =
.055). [Note: You may need more

than 1 random variable per question.]

Answer #2

Hope this will help you. Thank you :)

Suppose that a box contains 6 pens and that 4 of them are
defective. A sample of 2 pens is selected at random without
replacement. Define the random variable XX as the number of
defective pens in the sample. If necessary, round your answers to
three decimal places.
Write the probability distribution for XX.

Question 1: Suppose that of 6,000 electrical fuses, 5% are
defective. Also, suppose that a random sample of 10 fuses is
selected and consider the random variable X representing the number
of defective fuses in the sample. (a) Explain why a binomial
distribution is appropriate. (b) What is the probability that at
least one of the fuses is defective? (c) What is the probability
that fewer than 3 fuses are defective?
Question 2: Refer to the setup in Question 1....

A state lottery randomly chooses 8 balls numbered from 1 through
39 without replacement. You choose 8 numbers and purchase a lottery
ticket. The random variable represents the number of matches on
your ticket to the numbers drawn in the lottery. Determine whether
this experiment is binomial. If so, identify a success, specify
the values n, p, and q and list the possible values of the random
variable x.

You will flip two coins together 10 times. You are interested in
the outcome where both coins land on heads. Let X be the number of
times you observe this outcome. Answer Question 1 through 4.
1. What are the possible values for x? (values the random
variable X can take)
2. Is X binomial random variable? If so, state its parameter n
and p. If not, explain why.
3. Find the probability that you will see both coins landing...

Each of 13 refrigerators of a certain type has been returned to
a distributor because of an audible, high-pitched, oscillating
noise when the refrigerators are running. Suppose that 10 of these
refrigerators have a defective compressor and the other 3 have less
serious problems. If the refrigerators are examined in random
order, let X be the number among the first 8 examined that
have a defective compressor.

For this question, you may (where appropriate) write down an
Excel formula using one of the functions listed below instead of
providing a numerical answer. However, you must specify clearly the
value of each parameter in the Excel function (you may use the 2010
or the 2007 version). If you choose to provide a numerical answer,
it should be accurate to 3 significant figures.

uniformly distributed random variable X....
