A manufacturer ships toaster s in cartons of 20 In each carton , they estimate a 5% chance that one of the toasters will need to be sent back for minor repairs. What is the probability that in a carton , there will be exactly 5 toasters that need repair?

Step 1

**Solution:**

**Binomial distribution:**

The binomial distribution gives the probability of number of successes out of *n* trials in a series of Bernoulli trials.

The probability mass function (pmf) of a binomial random variable *X* is given as:

Step 2

**The probability that in a carton, there will be exactly 5 toasters that need repair is obtained below:**

From the given information, number of ships toaster s in cartons of 20 in each cart...
