a) Assuming that 15% of all manufactured pencils are defective, what is the probability of finding at least 80 percent defective pencials in this sample?

b) If 120 pencils are found to be defective in today's sample, is it likely that the manufacturing process may need improvements? Explain....

**Emily**, Sunday, January 13, 2008 at 5:31pmI probably read this problem wrong, but wouldn't (a) be a trick question? If you take 15% defected pencils out of however many regular pencils, that particular sample will be all defected, wouldn't it? Like I said, I probably read it wrong, so plz wait for a different answer. :-)
