The manufacturer is going to randomly select K parts from the shipment for inspection, and the shipment will be accepted if no defective parts are found in the sample. How large does K have to be to ensure that the probability that the manufacturer accepts an unacceptable shipment is less than 0.1? Hint: We recommend using R to plug in different values of K.

Answer:C. 32

Step-by-step explanation:The shipment for 100 parts is received by a manufacturer. Shipment will be rejected if more than 5 parts are defective. The manufacturer selects a sample and based on that selected sample he accepts or rejects the whole shipment. The minimum size of the sample should be 32 based on the probability of less than 0.1 and then decision should be made whether to accept or reject the shipment. If no defective part is found in the sample, shipment should be accepted.
