(d) within 2 years fewer than 10 succeed

- statistics, find the probability -
**Reiny**, Friday, October 21, 2011 at 7:37pmprob(fewer than 10 succeed) --> prob(none succeeds + one succeeds + 2 succeed + ...+ 9 succeed)

= (.77)^62 + C(62,1)(.23)(.77^61) + C(62,2)(.23^2)(.77^60) + ... + C(62,9)(.23^9)(.77^53)

= ....

lots of button-pushing here

**troy**, Friday, October 21, 2011 at 7:57pmWhen I computed this, it came out very oddly.. The C is throwing me off. cNr?

C(n,r) =_{n}C_{r}

= n!/(r!(n-r)!)

e.g. C(62,2) = 62!/(2!60!) = 1891

most calculators have the_{n}C_{r}key, mine is the 2nd function of the 5 key

e.g. to find C(62,2)

enter:

62_{n}C_{r}

2

=

to get 1891

PS. I did not take the time to find the final answer to the above string of probabilities.
