    I have a strong feeling that you have a typo, and that you meant to say,
    "Assuming we randomly select 12 people. "

    Please confirm.

    if it is 12 people she meant then the answer would be c)

    These are not multiple choice answers, they are individual questions

  • To dee , probabilty -

    a) prob that exactly 5 out of 12 will recognize
    = C(12,5)(.61)^5(.39)^7
    = appr 0.0918

    b)
    prob = C(12,0)(.61)^0 (.39)^12 + C(12,1)(.61)^1 (.39)^11 + ... + C(12,5)(.61)^5 (.39)^7

    c) prob = 1 - (answer to b)

    d) prob = C(12,0)(.61)^0 (.39)^12
    = .00001238
