1. The probability of seeing the first 61 in a batch good and the last 3 defective is (.96)^61 * (.04)^3 = X

Now then, count the number of ways a batch of 64 could have exactly 3 defectives. The formula for n-choose-c or 64-choose-3 is (n!/c!(n-c)!) (where ! means factorial).
64!/3!*61! = 41664.

Finally 41664*X = .221 or 22.1%
