Problem Solving:Using the Binomial Formula: P(x)=(nCx)pxqnx
A Dozen Eggs An egg distributor determines that the probability that any individual egg has a crack is .014.
a)Write the binomial probability formula to determine the probability that exactly x of n eggs are cracked.
b)Write the binomial probability formula to determine the probability that exactly 2 in a onedozen egg carton are cracked.
px=.014 qx=.986 nCx= n!/x!(nx)!
