When a truckload of apples arrives at a packing plant, a random sample of 250 is selected and examined for bruises, and other defects. The whole truckload will be rejected if more than 5% of the sample is unsatisfactory. Although it is not known, in fact 8% of the apples on the truck do not meet the desired standard. What is the probability the shipment will be accepted anyways.
