Please help me figure out the formula and then I could work the problem.Answer by stanbon(60778)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!These are binomial problems. n is the number of trials p is the probability of success on each trial x is the number of successes in n trials. --- The formula is P(x=k) = nCk*p^k*q^(n-k) ---- Cheers, Stan H.
