 Question 103793: Julio works as a quality control expert in a beverage factory. The assembly line that he monitors produces about 20,000 bottles in 24-hour period. Julio samples 120 bottles an hour and rejects the line if 1/50 of the sample is defective. About how many defective bottles should Julio allow before rejecting the entire line? I tried to mutiply 120 by 1/50. I am not sure where to start on this one.Answer by stanbon(57203)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!(1/50)*120 = 2.4 He should allow 2 defective; on finding the 3th he should shut down the line.
