Here's one way to do this problem:

n = 5

p = .25

q = 1 - p = 1 - .25 = .75

You can do this: you can find P(0) and P(1), add both values together, then subtract from 1.

You can use a binomial probability table, or calculate by hand using the following formula:

P(x) = (nCx)(p^x)[q^(n-x)]

I hope this will help.
