bulldozers for the new project, after 6 months into the project
please calculate the
probability using the binomial distribution that:
a. none of the bulldozers will be oper...

To save money, lab usually merges blood samples for test.
Samples from multiple people will be tested only once, if the
result is negative (i.e. no virus, every criterion is in the normal
range, etc.), then all these people tested are healthy. If the
result is positive (at least one person from this batch whose blood
sample is abnormal), then these samples are tested one-by-one.
Suppose all samples are taken independently. If the probability
that for a person to get...
