**drwls**, Wednesday, September 21, 2011 at 8:14amCalculate the probabilities that there will be 0,1,2,3,4 and 5 persons that agree.

P(5) = (0.4)^5*[5!/(0!*5!]= 0.4^5

= 0.01024

P(0) = (0.6)^5*[5!/(0!*5!]= (0.6)^5

= 0.07776

P(1) = (0.4)*(0.6)^4*[5!/(4!*1!)]

= 0.25920

P(2) = (0.4)^2*(0.6)^3*[5!/(3!*2!)]

= 0.34560

etc. Calculate P(3) and P(4) using the same formula, and use the results to answer the questions for (a) through (d).

For (a), the answer is P(2) = 0.3456

For (d), the answer is P(0) + P(1) + P(2) = 0.68256

**Reiny**, Wednesday, September 21, 2011 at 8:22amI= important

N=not important

P(i) = 60/100 = 3/5

P(N) = 2/5

a) P(2out of5 for I) = C(5,2)(3/5)^2 (2/5)^3 = 10(9/25)(8/125) = 144/625 or .2304

..

d) fewer than three agree --> 0outof5 or 1outof5 or 2outof5 will agree

= C(5,0)(3/5)^0 (2/5)^5 + C(5,1)(3/5)^1 (2/5)^4 + C(5,2)(3/5)^2 (2/5)^3

= 1(1)(32/3125 + 5(3/5)(16/625) + 10(9/25)(8/125)

= 32/3125 + 48/625 + 144/625

= 992/3125 or .31744

do b) and c) the same way
