Question

Suppose that in the production of 60-ohm radio resistors, nondefective items are those that have a resistance between 58 and 62 ohms and the probability of a resistor’s being defective is The resistors are sold in lots of 200, with the guarantee that all resistors are nondefective. What is the probability that a given lot will violate this guarantee? (Use the Poisson distribution.)

The probability that a given lot will violate this guarantee is , in which x is the probability of a resistor being defective.

Step-by-step explanation:

In a Poisson distribution, the probability that X represents the number of successes of a random variable is given by the following formula: In which

x is the number of sucesses

e = 2.71828 is the Euler number is the mean in the given interval.

The probability of a resistor’s being defective is x:

This means that , in which n is the number of resistors.

The resistors are sold in lots of 200

This means that , so What is the probability that a given lot will violate this guarantee?

This is: In which So The probability that a given lot will violate this guarantee is , in which x is the probability of a resistor being defective.
