Acceptance Sampling. Exercises 35 and 36 involve the method of acceptance sampling, whereby a shipment of a large number of items is accepted based on test results from a sample of the items.AAA batteries AAA batteries are made by companies including Duracell, Energizer, Eveready, and Panasonic. When purchasing bulk orders of AAA batteries, a toy manufacturer uses this acceptance sampling plan: Randomly select 50 batteries and determine whether each is within specifications. The entire shipment is accepted if at most 2 batteries do not meet specifications. A shipment contains 2000 AAA batteries, and 2% of them do not meet specifications. What is the probability that this whole shipment will be accepted? Will almost all such shipments be accepted, or will many be rejected?
