Binomial distribution:

p=0.43 (probability of success)

q=1-p=0.57

N=10 (sample size)

Probability of r successes out of N:

P(X=r)=C(N,r)p^r*q^(N-r)

and C=combination=N!/(r!(N-r)!)

a. r=4

P(X=4)=C(10,4)*0.43^4*0.57^(10-4)=0.24

b. r≥8

P(X≥8)

=P(X=8)+P(X=9)+P(x=10)

= similar calculations as above
