1. A large shipment of computer chips is known to contain 8% defective chips. Suppose you select 500 chips at random.

(a) What distribution does the number of defective chips in the sample of 500 satisfy? (Please characterize its relevant parameters.)

(b) Suppose that you wish to calculate the probability that the number of defective chips in the sample is exactly 50. Write the exact formula for this number, but you are NOT required to evaluate the probability.

(c) What is the expected number of defective chips in your sample?

(d) What is the standard deviation of the number of defective chips in the sample?

Probability : Suppose a fraction 5% of the circuits produced by a circuit manufacturer is defective. Historically, given that the circuit is defective, the inspector (wrongly) accepts the circuit 10% of the time, thinking that there is no defect. If a circuit is not defective, he always correctly ... (Please see attachment)

A shipment of 100 tires from the TruTire Corporation is known to contain 20 defective tires. Ten tires are selected at random and each tire is replaced before the next tire is selected. The probability of getting at most 4 defective tires is ____________. The probability of getting more than 6 defective tires is _________.

A bin contains seven parts. The probability that any part in the bin is defective is 3.5E-3. If one part is selected at random from the bin, what is the probability that it is defective? Please explain equation used and steps to solve the problem.
