**MathGuru**, Friday, March 16, 2012 at 6:18pmThe easiest way to do this problem is to use a binomial distribution table.

For a), n = 20, p = .4, x = 0, 1, 2

Add together the probabilities you find in the table, then subtract from 1 for your answer.

For b), n = 20, p = .4, x = 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5

Add together the probabilities you find in the table. This will be your answer.

For c), n = 20, p = .4, x = 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20

Add together the probabilities you find in the table, then subtract from 1 for your answer.

I hope this helps.
