Question 30.
40% of the buttons manufactured by a firm are found to be defective. In a random sample of six buttons, find the probability of getting.
(i) exactly 4 defective buttons
(ii) more than one defective button.
Let X be the number of buttons manufactured is a Binomial.
Variate with parameters n = 6 and p = 40% = 0.4, so q = 1 – p = 0.6. Then the probability mass function is:
p (x) = nCx px qn-x= 0, 1, 2 ……. n.
= 6Cx (0.4)x (0.6)6-x; x = 0, 1, 2 6.
(i) P(exactly 4 defective buttons) = p(x = 4)
= 6C4 (0.4)4 (0.6)6-4 = 15 × 0.0256 × 0.36 = 0.1382

(ii) P(more than 1 defective button) =p(x > 1) = 1 -p(x = 0)

Among 400 randomly -selected persons of a city, 280 like ice-cream. Test at 1% level of significance that 50% of the people in that city like ice-creams.
Linking ice-cream is an attribute, so use test for proportion.
Given: n = 400, x = 280 (ice cream liked)
∴ Sample proportion : p $$\frac{x}{n}=\frac{280}{400}$$ and
P0 = 0.5 (50% people like ice cream): α = 1%
H0: 50% people like ice cream (i.e., P0 = 0.5) H1 : people liking ice cream differ from 50% (i.e., P0 ≠ 0.5 ) {two tailed test ±K)
under H0 the test statistic is : At α = 1% the two tail crtical values are ±K = ± 2.58

(Use α = 5%) Given: n1 = 10, n2 = 12, x̄1 = 62, x̄2 = 55, S12 = 16 and S22 = 25 (S2 sample variance). Here n1, n2 < 30 use small sample, t-test for equality of means, α = 5% H0: Means of first and second population are same (i.e., µ1, = µ2)
H1 : Mean of first population is greater than mean of second population (i.e., µ1 > µ2) {upper tail test ±k}
under H0 the t-test statistics is:- At α = 5% for (n1 + 2-2) = 10 + 12 – 2 = 20 d.f the upper tail critical value k = 1.73
Here tcal lies in rejection region (R.R)

Calculate the control limits for C-chart.
7; SC
Standard is not known, for c-chort we need $$\overline{\mathrm{C}}=\frac{\Sigma \mathrm{C}}{k}$$ = C – no. of defects and k = 20 rolls.
∴ C̅ = $$\frac { 75 }{ 20 }$$ = 3.75. The control limits are:-
C.L = C = 3.75;
L.C.L = $$\overline{\mathrm{C}}-3 \sqrt{\overline{\mathrm{C}}}=3.75-3 \sqrt{3.75}$$ = 3.75 – 5.8094 = -2.0594 = 0
U.C.L = $$\overline{\mathrm{C}}+3 \sqrt{\overline{\mathrm{C}}}=3.75+3 \sqrt{3.75}$$ = 9.5594.

Lest cost is 4 at (3, 3), allocated as: X33 = min (110,330) = 110, ‘C’ is satisfied So, delete and replace 330 by (330 -110) = 220 Next least cost is 5 at (2, 1) allocate as: X21 = min (100, 80) = 80. 1 is satisfied and delete. Replace 100 by (100 – 80) = 20.

Find a parabolic trend of the form Y = ax + bx + cx2 for the following time series. Let x and y be the year and students strength. Here X̄ = middle most year = 2012
From the normal equation: na + b Σx + c Σx2 = Ey
5a + b.0 + c.10 = 53; 5a + 10c = 53 ………. (1)
From: a Σx + b Σx2 + c Σx3 – Σxy; a.0 + b.10 + c.0 = 0

(i) having income more than Rs. 9,000
(ii) having income in between Rs. 8,500 and Rs. 12,000.
Let x be the monthly income is a normal variate with the parameters μ= 10,000 and σ = 1,000 and N = 5000. Then S N.V is  (i) P(income more than ₹9000) = P(X > 9000) No. of workers = 0.8413 × 5000 = 4206.5

(ii) P(income between ₹ 8500 and ₹ 12,000) = p(8500 < x < 12000)  = Area from (-1.5) to ∞ – Area from 2 to ∞
