Find P(0), then take 1 - P(0) for your probability (since the problem says "what is the probability that at least one" is defective). Using the binomial probability function (you can use a binomial probability table as well): P(x) = (nCx)(p^x)[q^(n-x)] n = 4 x = 0 p = 17/53...

0.98^7 is the probability that none of them are unlicenced. So, 1 minus this probability is the probability that one or more are unlicenced.

If you take 7 minus the result of a dice throw, then that's another valid dice throw. So, for two dice throws, the probability that the sum is greater than 8, is the same as the probability of 14 minus the sum being larger than 8, which is the same as the probability of the ...

MATH Prob.
Assuming no replacement, the probability of a diamond is 1/13. Once that is drawn, the probability of a black 10 (spade or club) or a black 7 each is 2/51 (since one card is already drawn). The "either-or" probability is obtained by adding the individual probabilities, while ...
