#### Question

From a lot of 25 bulbs of which 5 are defective a sample of 5 bulbs was drawn at random with replacement. Find the probability that the sample will contain -

(a) exactly 1 defective bulb.

(b) at least 1 defective bulb.

#### Solution

Let X be the number of defective items.

P(an item is defective)=p=5/25=0.2, q=0.8, n=5

a) P(exactly one defective bulb)

=P(X=1)

=""^5C_1(p)^1q^5

=(5)(0.2)(0.8)4

=0.4096

b)P(atleastone defective bulb)

=1-P(X=0)

=1-""^5C_0(0.2)^0(0.8)^5

=1-(1)(1)(0.3277)

=0.6723
