After constructing a new manufacturing machine, five prototype integrated circuit chips are produced and it is found that two are defective (D) and three are acceptable (A). Assume that two of the chips are randomly selected with replacement from this population.
a. After identifying the 25 different possible samples, find the proportion of defects in each of them, then use a table to describe the sampling distribution of the proportions of defects.
b. Find the mean of the sampling distribution.
c. Is the mean of the sampling distribution (from part (b)) equal to the population proportion of defects? Does the mean of the sampling distribution of proportions always equal the population proportion?
