Can someone please help me with this example, I do not understand it at all.
Binomial problems: Advanced
A machine that manufactures automobile parts is estimated to produce defective parts % of the time. If this estimate is correct, and parts produced by this machine are randomly selected, what is the probability that at most turn out to be defective? Round your answer to four decimal places.

    Let me try this again:
    Binomial problems: Advanced
    The unemployment rate in a city is 14%. Find the probability that more than 2 out of 6 people from this city sampled at random are unemployed. Round your answer to four decimal places.

  • Statistics -

    The easiest way to do this problem is to use a binomial probability table. If you do this, you will need to find P(3), P(4), P(5), and P(6). In the table, n = 6, p = .14, x = 3, 4, 5, 6 (for each one). Add all these probabilities together for the total probability.

    I hope this will help.
