**economyst**, Monday, February 11, 2008 at 9:15amI would solve this problem using basic combinatorial methods. Hint: an EXCEL spreadsheet is very helpful in these types of problems.

The probability that 23 are cured is exactly equal to the probability that 2 are not cured. So, 25-choose-2 is 24*25/2 = 300. So, the probability of seeing exactly 2 not cured is 300*(.9^23)*(.1^2) = 26.588%.

Take it from here to solve the rest of the problems.
