    Computer company makes computer chips. Chips made with a 27% yield, meaning that 27% of them are good and the rest are defective.

    1. If one chip is picked randomly, find the probability that it is not good.

    2. If 2 chips are randomly picked, find the probability that they are both good.

    3. If 5 chips are picked randomly, what is the expected number of good chips?

    4. If 5 chips are randomly picked, find the probability that they are all good. If the 5 picked chips are good chips, would you continue to believe that the yield was 27%?

    1. As one chip is picked randomly, the probability that this chip is good is 27%. Hence, the probability that it is not good is 1-27%=73%.

    2. If ...
