 Question 345979: Suppose that a shipment of 120 electronic components contains 4 defective components to determine whether the shipment should be accepted, a quality control engineer randomly selects 4 of the components and test them. If 1 or more of the components is defective, the shipment is rejected. What is the probability that the shipment is rejected?Answer by Fombitz(13828)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!P(Bad)=4/120=1/30 P(Good)=29/30 . . . P(all 4 Good)=P(Good)*P(Good)*P(Good)*P(Good) P(4G)= P(not 4G)= The probability of rejection is then .
