Problem Solving:Using the Binomial Formula: P(x)=(nCx)pxqn-x
A Dozen Eggs An egg distributor determines that the probability that any individual egg has a crack is .014.
a)Write the binomial probability formula to determine the probability that exactly x of n eggs are cracked.

b)Write the binomial probability formula to determine the probability that exactly 2 in a one-dozen egg carton are cracked.

px=.014 qx=.986 nCx= n!/x!(n-x)!

What is your question? I will be happy to critique your thinking or work.
