When purchasing bulk orders of​ batteries, a toy manufacturer uses this acceptance sampling​ plan: Randomly select and test
56
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
5000
​batteries, and
11​%
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?
The probability that this whole shipment will be accepted is?
​(Round to four decimal places as​ needed.)
The company will accept
what %
of the shipments and will reject
what ​%
of the​ shipments, so

Step 1

Binomial distribution:

Since there are only two outcomes (shipment accepted and shipment rejected), the given scenario follows binomial distribution. The pmf of binomial distribution is as follows:

Step 2

Computation of percentage of shipments that the company will accept:

Here, n = 56

Probability of success, p = 0.11

Probability of failure, q = 0.89 (= 1−0.11)

The entire shipment is accepted if at most 2 batteries do not meet specification. That is we have to find P(x ≤ 2).

The percentage of shipments that the company will accept is obtained as 4.61%, from the calculations given below:

Step 3

Computation of percentage of shipments that the company will reject:

The percentage of shipments that the compan...
