I worked the probability problem I just need someone to check the answer please!
In a batch of 50 batteries, four are defective. If we select 3 batteries, what is the probability that at least 2 are good.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.04 out of 50 are bad, so 46 out of 50 are good can we do a binomial approach?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[\binom{50}{2}(\frac{46}{50})^2(\frac{4}{50})^{48}+\binom{50}{3}(\frac{46}{50})^{3}(\frac{4}{50})^{47}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i think 50s are 3 in the binomial code ...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0a binomial approach is used when looking for the probability of an exact number of things. i used the multiplication rule( that is what is used in the book to find at least prob.)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0shold we assume replacement or not? ggb = (4*46*47)/(50*49*48) gbg = (4*46*47)/(50*49*48) bgg = (4*46*47)/(50*49*48) ggg = (46*47*48)/(50*49*48)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.03*(4*46*47)/(50*49*48)+(46*45*44)/(50*49*48) without replacement gets us about 99.51

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So in other words 99% would be a correct answer
