0.5996 is the probability that none contain high levels of contamination.

Step-by-step explanation:

We are given the following information:

We treat  lab specimen containing high levels of contamination as a success.

P( lab specimen containing high levels of contamination) = 0.12

Then the number of lab specimens follows a binomial distribution, where where n is the total number of observations, x is the number of success, p is the probability of success.

Now, we are given n = 4

We have to find the probability that none of the lab specimen consist of high level of contamination.

We have to evaluate: 0.5996 is the probability that none contain high levels of contamination.
