Smith is a weld inspector at a ship yard. He knows from keeping track of good and substandard welds that 5% will be substandard. If he checks 300 of 7500 welds, what is the probability that he will find less than 20 substandard welds?

To solve the problems on the up-coming test we will use either the "normalcdf" or InvNorm" functions on the TI-84 Plus calculator.
