Daffodil bulbs are sold in boxes of 200.
It is known that 2% of daffodil bulbs fail to grow.
X is the random variable for the number of failed bulbs.
What type ofprobability distribution best describes this situation?
A B C D
Could the Poisson distribution be used as a suitable approximation for X?
A. √ 2
In question 1, if the Poisson distribution was used, what would be the probability that NO bulbs failed to grow.
In question 1, if the Poisson distribution was used, what would be the probability that more than 3 bulbs would fail to grow?
