Blood type AB is found in only 3% of the populationâ€ . If 240 people are chosen at random, find the probability of the following. (Round your answers to four decimal places.)
(a) 5 or more will have this blood type

Here's one way to do this problem:
n = 240
p = .03
q = 1  p = 1  .03 = .97
For (a), you will need to find P(0) through P(4). Add together, then subtract the total from 1 for the probability.
I'll let you try (b).
You can use a binomial probability table or calculate by hand using the following formula:
P(x) = (nCx)(p^x)[q^(nx)]
I hope this will help get you started.
