 Question 281791: With Binomial Distributions and Probability: In a lottery, each ticket buyer has a 1 in 10 chance of winning a prize. If Steve buys 10 tickets, what is the probability that he will win at least 1 prize? How do you work this problem out?Answer by stanbon(57984)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!With Binomial Distributions and Probability: In a lottery, each ticket buyer has a 1 in 10 chance of winning a prize. If Steve buys 10 tickets, what is the probability that he will win at least 1 prize? How do you work this problem out? ------------------------------- Binomial Problem: n = 10 ; p = 1/10 --- P(win at least 1) = 1 - P(win none) ---- P(win at least 1) = 1 - (0.9)^10 --- P(win at least 1) = 1 - 0.3487 = 0.6513 ======================================== Cheers, Stan H.
