Homework Help: Statistics

Posted by Krista on Saturday, February 11, 2012 at 10:10pm.

Suppose that an automobile parts wholesaler claims that .5 percent of the car batteries in a shipment are defective. A random sample of 200 batteries is taken, and four are found to be defective.


(a) Use the Poisson approximation to find the probability that four or more car batteries in a random sample of 200 such batteries would be found to be defective, if we assume that the wholesaler's claim is true. (Round your answer to 4 decimal places.)

Any help would be greatly apriciated. Thanks
