    For 1).
    Your values are the following:
    p = .1, q = 1 - p = .9, and n = 25

    To find mean and standard deviation:
    mean = np = (25)(.1) = ?
    standard deviation = √npq = √(25)(.1)(.9)= ?

    I'll let you finish the calculations to answer the question.

    For 2).
    Use the binomial table to determine your answer for the values given.

    I hope this will help get you started.
