    probability

    a factory produces fuses, which are packaged in boxes of 10. Three fuses are selected at random from each box for inspection. The box is rejected if at least one of these three fuses is defective. What is the probability that a box containing 5 defective fuses will be rejected?

    You did not provide the probability of getting a defective fuse.
