    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.
