**MathMate**, Wednesday, August 8, 2012 at 6:14pmOut of six students, we need exactly 3 fit the criteria of being born in 3 months out of 12, i.e. with probability p=3/12=0.25.

Since the probability is assumed constant throughout, and we know the total number of students, we can use the binomial distribution, where

n=6

x=3

p=0.25

and the probability is given by:

P(X=x)=C(n,x)p^x (1-p)^(n-x)

where C(n,x)=binomial coefficient = n!/(x!(n-x)!).

Just plug in the numbers to get your results.
