Poisson Distribution
Answer 8

Al says, "Hey, what kind of manager are you anyway? Look at your Poisson table -

 r = 0.1 E p(0) 0.9048 9 p(1) 0.0905 1 p(2) 0.0045 0 p(3) 0.0002 0

and you will see that, for an average 0.01 defectives, which means 0.1 expected per 10-balloon sample, it is mathmatically predictable (kindly regard the second line of the E column of the table) that along with 9 defect-free samples, you can expect to get 1 sample which contains 1 defect, which is exactly what you are holding in your hand at this very moment; therefore, this result is precisely compatible with the guarantee of 1% defectives. So all is as it should be, and here is the Tooty order, and you can sign your name right there, on the dotted line at the bottom."

Explanation

Al's answer contains his own theory of the matter, and there is nothing more to explain.

Comment

The next question contains the comment, and there is nothing else to anticipate.
