Question:

In a manufacturing plant that produces new computers, a 0.15 probability exists that a computer will be defective. If five computers are manufactured, what’s the probability that all of them will be defective?

A 0.000076
Explaination

The probability that all five computers will be defective is 0.15 × 0.15 × 0.15 × 0.15 × 0.15 = 0.0000759 (round up to 0.000076).
