  1. Your questions fall in the category of binomial distribution

    I will do the first two, you do and then show me how you did the others.

    a) prob(wake up) = .78
    prob(not wake up) = .22
    prob(not wake up exactly 3 times out of 8)
    = C(8,3) (.22^3)(.78^5)
    = 56(.0030742......)
    = ..17216 , rounded off to 5 decimal places

    b) prob(wake up 8 out of 8 times)
    = C(8,8)(.78^8)(.22^0)
    = (1)(.13701)(1)
    = .13701

    c) late more than three times
    = late 4 times + late 5 times + ...+ late 8 times
    or
    = 1 - (late none + late 1 + late 2 + late 3)
    = ....

    d) ....
