Please check my answer. I am not sure.

1. sameple space is 100 and 7.3% fails, the failing filters are about 7.3 for every 100 filters.

2. The probability of having less than 5 failing filters is impossible because we already know that for every 100, at least 7.3 filters fail to meet the specification.

p(5 or less)=0
