Problem: 15

The probability of getting tails when tossing a biased coin is 60%. If you toss the coin 3 times, what is the probability of getting 2 tails and 1 head?

 

Problem: 17

Find the probability of 3 successes in 6 trials, if the probability of success is 0.4.

 

Problem: 19

Problem: 25

Draw a histogram of the binomial distribution that shows the probability of exactly k successes for a binomial experiment which consists of 5 trials with probability 0.6 of success on each trial. Also find the most likely number of successes.

 

Problem: 27

Draw a histogram of the binomial distribution that shows the probability of exactly k successes for a binomial experiment which consists of 10 trials with probability 0.077 of success on each trial. Also find the most likely number of successes.

n = 10

p = 0.077

 

Problem: 29
