**MathMate**, Wednesday, May 2, 2012 at 11:07pmThis typically calls for the hypergeometric distribution, which gives

P(y)=[(r,y)(N-r,n-y)]/(N,n)

where

N=total 32+5=37 light bulbs

n=sample size of 4

r=defective out of N, 5

y=number of defective in the sample

(x,y)=combination=x!/(y!(x-y)!)

P(3)=[(5,3)(37-5,5-3)]/(37,5)

=4960/435897

P(4)=160/435897

Total P(3+)=5120/435897=1.17%
