# Suppose that in the production of 60-ohm radio resistors, nondefective items are those that have a resistance between 58 and 62 ohms and the probability of a resistors being defective is 0.1%. The resistors are sold in lots of 200, with the guarantee that all resistors are nondefective. What is the probability that a given lot will violate this guarantee?

Chapter 24, PROBLEM SET 24.7 #15

Suppose that in the production of 60-ohm radio resistors, nondefective items are those that have a resistance between 58 and 62 ohms and the probability of a resistor’s being defective is 0.1%. The resistors are sold in lots of 200, with the guarantee that all resistors are nondefective. What is the probability that a given lot will violate this guarantee? (Use the Poisson distribution.)
