#### Solution Preview

a) We can use Pascal's Triangle to help us find the probability of multiple events when there are only two outcomes. Each side of the table represents one of two choices, and the numbers from left to right signify the number of true outcomes for those choices. Each row is labeled with its stage in the experiment. The total of the numbers added across ...

#### Solution Summary

Application of Pascal's triangle in Probability calculation is nicely illustrated with the help of two examples.
