\[P(2~out~of~4)=\binom{4}{2}~(bad)^2~(good)^2\] \[P(2~out~of~4)=6~(.20)^2~(.80)^2\]

the second part corresponds to an OR setup P(0) or P(1) or P(2)

\[P(0,1,2~out~of~ 4)=6[(.2)^0 (.8)^4+(.2)^1 (.8)^3+(.2)^2 (.8)^2]\]

where did u get the six from ?
amistre64
  • amistre64
hmm, i do seem to have been a little amiss with that .... apparently we are not choosing 2 out of 4 each time :/ (4 0) = 1 (4 1) = 4 (4 2) = 6

is that right ?
amistre64
  • amistre64
that does seem about right. can you see any other errors in my remembering of this?

  • anonymous
nope although i wouldn't have added it up to 6 i would have done each sum seperatly and then added them but thank you for your help :)

so the liklihood that no more than 2 are defective out of 4 is about 98%, sounds like a winner to me ... good luck :)
