microfracture knee surgery has a 75% chance of success on patients with degenerative knees. The surgery is performed on 5 patients. Find the probability of the surgery being successful on less than 3 patients

  • statistics -

    Here is the easiest way to do this problem.

    Use a binomial probability table.

    n = 5
    x = 0, 1, 2
    p = .75

    Add P(0), P(1), and P(2). This will be your probability.


    I hope this helps.
