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!!!

    you can do it that way, but why not work it as a continous problem, then round up to the next highest integer to get a whole person?
