IET 2227 Name _________________________________________ ‘Which Dist.’ Worksheet (Do not calculate these, just indicate either Binomial, Hypergeometric, Poisson distributions) 1. There is a 12% probability that a soda can is underweight (less than 12oz.) If we ship cans in cases of 24, what is the distribution on the number of underweight cans? What is the probability that there are exactly 2 underweight? 2. Suppose a particular case of 24 has 3 underweight containers. If you choose 6 at random, what is the probability that you get at least one defective? 3. A hospital ER accepts an average of about 47 bone fractures per week.

Now what if he holds all 8 until the end of the day and then checks how many were tagged? 7.
