in a health study, 18% of americans are underweight. If 4 americans are randomly selected, what is the probability that at least one will be underweight?

  • probability -

    prob(underweight) = .18
    prob(NOT underweight) = .82

    Prob(at least one underweight)
    = 1 - prob(all 4 not underweight)
    = 1 - .82^4
    = .5478..
    or appr 55%
