**MathMate**, Friday, August 31, 2012 at 7:21amThis problem has the following characteristics:

1. Number of trials is fixed (25) and known.

2. The probability of success is constant (0.9) throughout the trials and known.

3. The tests are independent

4. Each test is Bernoulli (i.e. true/false, 0/1)

These criteria indicate the binomial distribution, with

n=25, p=0.9, q=(1-0.9)=0.1

with

P(X=k)=C(n,k)p^{k}q^{n-k}

a.

Calculate P(X=25)

b.

calculate p=P(X=24)+P(X=25)

Probability for at most 23

=1-(P(X=24)+P(X=25))

c.

calculate

25

∑ P(X=k)

k=18
