Here's the question:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

A box contains 6 good and 8 defective light bulbs. The bulbs are drawn out one at a time, without replacement, and tested. What is the probability that the fifth good item is found on the ninth test?

Could someone explain how I would go about solving this problem? Thanks!!
