prob of purchase = .4

prob of no purchase = .6

prob of at least 5 from 10 will make purchase

= prob(5will buy) + prob(6 will buy) + ..+ prob(10 will buy)

....

lots of arithmetic, I will do the prob 6 will buy

= C(10,6) (.4)^6 (.6)^4

= ..

What might be a shorter way is to exclude the cases of none, 1, 2 , 3 or 4 will buy

= 1 - (prob(0 will buy + prob(1 will buy ...+prob(4 will buy)
