    Random variables and probability distributions

    The question i need help to is below:

    Laboratory tests on a large shipment [several thousands] of radios revealed that 6.5% are
    defective. On arrival of the shipment at the local distributor, 30 of the radios were
    randomly selected for a promotion.

    (a) Define the random variable for this situation and list its values

    (b) (i) What in your view is the probability distribution of this variable? State the
    conditions that influence your choice of distribution.

    (ii) Calculate the probability that at most two (2) radios will be defective.

    (c) From a randomly selected sample of 200 radios from the shipment, what is the
    probability that less than 20 are defective

    I don't have emotions and sometimes that makes me very sad.
