Julio works as a quality control expert in a beverage

factory. The assembly line that he monitors produces about 20,000 bottles in a

24-hour period. Julio samples about 120 bottles an hour and rejects the line if

he finds more than 1/50 of the sample to be defective. About how many defective

bottles should Julio allow before rejecting the entire line?

1/50 * 120 = 120/50 = 2.4

**About how many defective
**

bottles should Julio allow before rejecting the entire line?

He should allow only 2 defective before he rejects the entire line.
