**bobpursley**, Sunday, March 4, 2012 at 2:09pmP(at least 4 correct)

= P(4 correct) + P(5 correct) + P(6 correct)

= 6C4 (½)^4 (½)^2 + 6C5 (½)^5 (½)^1 + 6C6 (½)^6 (½)^0

... four correct answers, two incorrect, in any order plus five correct answers, one incorrect, in any order, plus six correct answers, zero incorrect, and only one possible order ...

= 15 (½)^6 + 6 (½)^6 + 1 (½)^6

= (15+6+1) / (2^6)

= 22 / 64

= 11 / 32

= 0.34375
