# Discrete Probability Distributions for Tamiami shearing, and Nokia cell phones

Discrete Probability Distributions

A Tamiami shearing machine is producing 10 percent defective pieces, which is abnormally

high. The quality control engineer has been checking the output by almost continuous

sampling since the abnormal condition began. What is the probability that in a sample of

10 pieces:

a. Exactly 5 will be defective?

b. 5 or more will be defective?

Suppose 1.5 percent of the antennas on new Nokia cell phones are defective. For a random

sample of 200 antennas, find the probability that:

a. None of the antennas is defective.

b. Three or more of the antennas are defective.
