) 43% of adults receive phone calls during the day. Amongst 10 randomly
selected people find the probability that
a. Adults receive exactly 4 phone calls.
b. Adults receive 8 or more phone calls.

Binomial distribution:
p=0.43 (probability of success)
q=1p=0.57
N=10 (sample size)
Probability of r successes out of N:
P(X=r)=C(N,r)p^r*q^(Nr)
and C=combination=N!/(r!(Nr)!)
a. r=4
P(X=4)=C(10,4)*0.43^4*0.57^(104)=0.24
b. r≥8
P(X≥8)
=P(X=8)+P(X=9)+P(x=10)
= similar calculations as above
