Answer #1

Solution

Given that ,

p = 0.78

1 - p = 1 - 0.78 = 0.22

n = 15

Using binomial probability formula ,

P(X = x) = ((n! / x! (n - x)!) * p^{x} * (1 - p)^{n -
x}

a)

x = 14

P(X = 14) = ((15! / 14! (1)!) * 0.78^{14} *
(0.22)^{1}

= 0.1018

Probability = 0.1018

b)

x = 13

P(X = 13) = ((15! / 13! (2)!) * 0.78^{13} *
(0.22)^{2}

= 0.2010

Probability = 0.2010

b)

P(X 13) = P(X = 13) + P(X = 14) + P(X = 15)

= ((15! / 13! (2)!) * 0.78^{13} *
(0.22)^{2} + ((15! / 14! (1)!) * 0.78^{14} *
(0.22)^{1} + ((15! / 15! (0)!) * 0.78^{15} *
(0.22)^{0}

= 0.3269

Probability = 0.3269
