Question

In the above problem, assume that probability of an item being defective is 0.1. Then in a random sample of 60 such items, how do you apply continuity correction to calculate the probability that at least 5 items are defective?

a. P(X is at least 5)=P(X<5.5)

b. P(X is at least 5)=P(4.5<X<5.5)

c. P(X is at least 5)= P(X>4.5)

d. P(X is at least 5)= P(X>5)

What are the mean and standard deviation of the binomial in the problem above?

a. 6 and 2.32

b. 6 and 5.4

c. 5.4 and 2.32

d. 5.4 and 1.52
