a) prob (exactly3) = C(7,3) (.35)^3 (.65)^4

= .2679

b) at least 3 people

= 1 -(prob(none) + prob(one) + prob(two)

= 1 - ( C(7,0) .65^7 + C(7,1) (.35)(.65)^6 + C(7,2)(.35)^2 (.65)^5 )

= ..... you do the button pushing.

c) at most 5 ---- > 0,1,2,3,4,5

or exclude: 6 and 7

d) fewer than 4 ---> 0,1,2,3
