Here are some properties of the experiment:
1. Each trial is Bernoulli (i.e. yes/no)
2. Number of trials is fixed.
3. probability of success does not vary from trial to trial.
4. each trial is independent of the others (assumed random sample).
All these point to the binomial distribution with N=10, p=0.95, q=(1-0.95)=0.05, and success="have had at least one adult beverage".
and (N,i) = number of ways to choose i objects from N distinct objects.
a). N=10, i=10, p=0.95, q=0.05
b) At least 6 => X=6,7,8,9,10
P(X≥6)=∑P(X=i), i=6 to 10
c) At most 8 => X=1,2,3...8
=> X≠9 and X≠10
We can use the identity
P(X≤8)=∑P(X=i), i=1 to 8
=1- [∑P(X=i), i=9 to 10]
which simplifies the calculations.
d) at most 1 => X=0 or X=1.
