I know you're supposed to use combinations, but how do you write it all out?

**Damon**, Monday, June 20, 2011 at 8:25pmBINOMIAL DISTRIBUTION, yes uses Combinations

n = 10

probability of black = .6

probability not black = .4

prob 8 = C(10,8) .6^8 .4^2

= 45*.6^8*.4^2 = .121

prob 9 = C(10,9) .6^9 .4^1

= 10 *.6^9 * .4 = .040

prob 10 = C(10,10) .6^10 .4^0

= 1 *.6^10 * 1 = .006

sum = .121+.040+.006 = .167

I got the Combinations from Pascal's triangle but you can use a table or calculate

C(n,k) = n!/[ k! (n-k)! ]
