Abstract : Graphs are given for the determination of the upper and lower reliability confidence-limits as defined by the number of successes in a random sample test. The graphs are for sample sizes of 33 or less and any number of successes. Two reliability results can be read directly from the graphs: the probability confidence that the reliability is at least p(l) and that it is at most p(u). The number of successes required for a particular sample to meet stated reliability confidence levels can be read. The graphs can also be used in determining whether the sample falls within predetermined risk levels. (Author)
