An investigational drug study is being conducted. The initial screening phase needs to include enough people so that the final (approved) group has at least 10 patients. The probability of a person being approved for the study is .80. what initial sample size is needed to make sure with a .939 probability that the study will have at least 10 patients?

i don't know how to go about working this problem. i know its a discrete random variable problem and i know that i somehow have to work backwards, but i have NO idea how to set it up or work it. any and all guidance would be appreciated. thank you!!!
