The probability that Aaron sees Hannah on any given day is 1/2. What is the probability that he sees her 3 out of all 5 days this week?

MathMate,
If we can assume random trials, and that probability remains constant (at 1/2).
Use binomial distribution.
N=5 (no. of trials),
n=3 (no. of successes),
p=1/2 (probability), q=(1p)=1/2
P(3 out of 5)
=C(5,3)p^3q^(53)
=5!/(2!3!) (1/2)^3(1/2)^2
=10/32
=5/16
