QUESTION:

Problem 17E

Temperature transducers of a certain type are shipped in batches of 50. A sample of 60 batches was selected, and the number of transducers in each batch not conforming to design specifications was determined, resulting in the following data:

a. Determine frequencies and relative frequencies for the observed values of of x = nonconforming transducers in a batch.

b. What proportion of batches in the sample have at most five nonconforming transducers? What proportion have fewer than five? What proportion have at least five nonconforming units?

c. Draw a histogram of the data using relative frequency on the vertical scale, and comment on its features.
