In a chemical plant, 24 holding tanks are used for final product storage. Four tanks are selected at random and without replacement. Suppose that six of the tanks contain material in which the viscosity exceeds the customer requirements.
(a) What is the probability that exactly one tank in the sample contains high viscosity material?
(b) What is the probability that at least one tank in the sample contains high viscosity material?
(c) In addition to the six tanks with high viscosity levels, four different tanks contain material with high impurities. What is the probability that exactly one tank in the sample contains high viscosity material and exactly one tank in the sample contains material with high impurities?
Solution:
