  1. a. what is .13^5 * .87^(31-5) >

    Put .13^5 * .87^(31-5)= in your google search window.

    b. at most four students...
    add the probabliliy of one, two, three, four, and none are left handed.
    Pr=.13^0*.87^31+.13^1*.87^30 + ...

    c. at least six?
    that is the same as 1- probability5orless
    = 1- Pr(a)-Pr (b) where pr(a), pr(b) is in part a, and b.
