it is estimated that 17% of americans have blue eyes. A random sample of 9 americans is selected. Find the probability that the sample includes exactly 2 people with blue eyes. Find the probability that the sample includes at most 2 people with blue eyes. Find the mean number of blueyed people in a sample of 9 americans.

MathGuru
Mean = np = 9 * .17 = 1.53
Use binomial probability formula (or a binomial probability table).
Formula:
P(x) = (nCx)(p^x)[q^(nx)]
x = 0,1,2
n = 9
p = .17
q = 1  p = 1  .17 = .83
For first part: Find P(2) for probability.
For second part: Find P(0) and P(1). Add P(0), P(1), and P(2) for probability.
I'll let you take it from here.
