10- A pharmaceutical company receives large shipments of aspirin tablets. The acceptance sampling plan is to randomly select and test

46 tablets, then accept the whole batch if there is only one or none that​ doesn't meet the required specifications. If one shipment of 4000 aspirin tablets actually has a 3​% rate of​ defects, what is the probability that this whole shipment will be​ accepted? Will almost all such shipments be​ accepted, or will many be​ rejected?
