    I need help with the probability and explaining it. This is graduate level work. Please see attached case study. The questions I need help with are the two for the case study at the bottom of the page.

    These are the two discussion questions:
    1. What are the chances of getting 15 days of rain over the next 30 days?

    To calculate the chance of 15 raining days in the upcoming month, we need to use the binomial distribution.

    Prob(X = k) = (nCk)(p^k)(1-p)^(n-k).

    In this formula, X is the random variable that we are concerned with (so the number of raining days). k is the value that we want it to be (so 15), n is the total number ...
