a. 0.7903

b. 0.8154

c. 0.3670

d. 0.1429

Answer #1

**Solution:-**

p = 1/5 = 0.20, n = 7

**a) (a) The probability they will get at least one
question correct is 0.7903**

x = 1

By applying binomial distribution:-

P(x,n) =
^{n}C_{x}*p^{x}*(1-p)^{(n-x)}

**P(x >
1) = 0.7903**

**b) The probability they will answer none of the
questions correctly is 0.2097.**

x = 0

By applying binomial distribution:-

P(x,n) =
^{n}C_{x}*p^{x}*(1-p)^{(n-x)}

**P(x = 0) = 0.2097**

**c) (c) The probability they will get exactly one
question correct is 0.3607.**

x = 1

By applying binomial distribution:-

P(x,n) =
^{n}C_{x}*p^{x}*(1-p)^{(n-x)}

**P(x = 1) = 0.3607**
