**MathGuru**, Wednesday, March 23, 2011 at 7:14pm(a) Take sample size times .88 for expected value.

(b) Use a binomial probability table. Values are: n = 7, x = 5, and p = .88

(c) Use the table again. Find x = 5,6,7. Use same values for n and p. Add together for total probability.

I hope this will help get you started.
