Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Ok, let's see how to do it. They say that every 2 bulbs are defective in 1500 bulbs. So the ratio of bulbs which are defective = 2/1500. Now, to find out number of bulbs which are defective in 24000 bulbs we simply multiply the ratio. So, Total number of defective bulbs = 2/1500 * 24000 = ?
