 Question 92337: Joe must sell 3 cars this month to meet his qouta. Tonight he has after-dinner appointments with five prospective customers, each of whom happens to be interested in a differant car. If has 30% chance of success with each customer, what is the probability that he will meet his qouta by tomorrow morning? Suppose that three of Joe's customers were interested in the same car, and that they'll go elsewhere if it has already sold. Would it be appropriate to use the binomial distribution under these conditions? Why are Why not? O.K. I think the last part of the question I have answered, my answer is "The trials are independent , that is the outcome on one trial does not affect the outcome on the other trials.

 Question 92889: I'm really glad you're here. Math is just not my thing, obviously, but I'm glad its yours. Here it is: 1. The approximate distance it takes to stop a car, based on the speed the car is traveling, is given in the following chart: Miles per Hour Stopping Distance (ft) 25 62 35 106 45 161 50 195 55 228 65 306 a. Find the quadratic function based on the stopping distance for 55 mph and 65 mph and the fact that at 0 mph the stopping distance is 0 feet. b. Use that equation to predict the stopping distance for 55 mph and 65 mph and compare them with the distances given in the chart. c. If the equation continues to be valid for higher speeds, how many feet would it take to stop a drag racer that reaches a speed of 230 mph? Thanks so much for your help!
