prob of visit = 1/5 = p = .2

Binomial dist:

p(x = 7) = [30:7] .2^7 (.8)^23

look up binomial coef [30:7]

or use formula

30!/[7!(23!)]

30!/23!/7! = 30*29*28*27*26*25*24/(7*6*5*4*3*2)

= 29*28*27*26*25*24/(7*6*4)

= 29*4*26*25 = 75,400

then

p = 75,400 (.2^7)(.8^23)

= .005697

prob to go Disney = 1/5

prob not to go Disney = 4/5

prob that 7 of 30 will go

= C(30,7)(1/5)^7 (4/5)^23 = appr. .1538

binomial coef error

coef = 2035800 not 75,400

30!/23!/7! = 30*29*28*27*26*25*24/(7*6*5*4*3*2)

2035800

p = 2035800 (.2^7)(.8^23)

= .1538
