Sixty percent of the students at a particular community college are female.
If 13 students at that community college are selected at random,
find the probability that 5 or 6 students will be female.
Use Appendix Table or Excel function for Binomial distribution.
[Remember from previous test: P(5 or 6) = P(5) + P(6) ]

I don't have your Appendix, nor do I know which Excel function you are talking about, but ..

Prob (female) = 60/100 = 3/5
prob (male) = 2/5

prob (5 of 13 are female) = C(13,5)(3/5)^5 (2/5)^8
= 1287 (.07776)(.0006553) = .06559

do prob(6 of 13 are female) the same way and add up the 2 results.
