Hi,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I have This probability problem and I dont know how to do it:

A company makes plastic panel used in automobiles. The panel production process is such thast the number of flaws on a panel follows a Poisson process with a mean of 0.03 flaws per panel.

1- If one panel is randomly selected from the production process, what is the probability it has no flaws.

My solution:

lambda=0.03*1=0.03

f(0,0.03)=(e^(-0.03)*(0.03)^0)/(0!)

2- if 50 panesl is randomly sampled from the production process, what is the probability it has no flaws.

No solution here. I am not sure but it is the same as above but with lambda=0.03*50??

3- What is the expected number of panels that need to be sampled before flaws are found?

No solution indeed!!

Please can I have some help with this problem?

B.

1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution
