Are you familiar with the binomial distribution? Let X be the random variable number of manufactured pens that are defective. X ~ Binomial(n = 12, p = 1/10). Calculate: 1. 2. 3. .

Hi, Make use of binomial distribution X~B(n,p) where n is the number of pens(12 in ur case) and p is the probability of success ( for u case, its to get a defective pen which is 0.1) Now calculate P(X=2) and so on... Hope it helps
