Question

If the probability is 0.75 that a person will believe a rumor about the crimes of a certain politician, find the probabilities that

a) Out of a set of 100 people, 60 will believe it

b) Out of a set of 100 people, 75 will believe it

Answer #1

We are given here that:

P( person will believe a rumor about the crimes of a certain
politician) = 0.75

a) The probability that Out of a set of 100 people, 60 will believe it is computed here using the binomial probability function as:

**Therefore 0.000363 is the required probability
here.**

b) The probability that Out of a set of 100 people, 75 will believe it is computed here using the binomial probability function as:

**Therefore 0.0918 is the required probability
here.**
