DuPont produces Kevlar, a high strength (five times stronger than steel) lightweight fiber. Kirby Outfitters uses the fiber in some of its products and occasionally inspectors find a small flaw in the strands of fiber purchased. Assume that inspectors find an average of .3 flaws per 1000 feet of fiber. Use the Poisson table to compute the probability of finding
a. Exactly one dlaw in a randomly selected 1000-foot segment of fiber.
b. No flaws in a randomly selected 2000-foot segment.
c. More than two flaws in a randomly selected 4000-foot segment.
d. Five flaws in the next 10,000 feet of fiber you inspect.
