Binomial Distribution

posted by .

A biology quiz consists of twelve multiple-choice questions. Eight must be answered correctly to receive a passing grade. If each question has five possible answers, of which only one is correct, what is the probability that a student who guesses at random on each question will pass the examination? (Round your answer to four decimal places.)
