1. get 8 , 9 or 10 right

p right = .2
p not right = .8

binomial distribution

p 8 out of 10 = C(10,8)* .2^8 *.8^2
= 45 * 2.56*10^-6 * .64 = 73.7*10^-6

p 9 out of 10 = C(10,9)*.2^9 * .8^1
= 10 * 5.12*10^-7 * .8 = 4.096*10^-6

p 10 out of 10 = 1*.2^10 = .1024*10^-6

78 out of a million, forget about it
