Question

Judging from recent experience, 5% of the computer keyboards produced by an automatic, high-speed machine are defective. If six keyboards are randomly selected, what is the probability that less than 3 of the keyboards are defective? *

Answer #1

X : number of defective keyboards.

X ~ bin ( n,p)

where, n = 6, p = 0.05, q = (1-p) = (1-0.05) = 0.95

*the pmf of the
distribution be :-*

**the probability
that less than 3 of the keyboards are defective
is:-**

Q2. An automatic bottle ﬁlling machine is supposed to ﬁll 600ml
liquid to each bottle. While if the deviation of actual ﬁlling
volume is more than 5ml from 600ml, it will be assumed to be
