    Solve the following problems using the binomial tables:
    If n=50 and p=.40, find P(x=11)=0.0057
    If n=100 and p=.20, find P(x>10)=1-0.0023=0.9977
    If n=20 and p= .60, find P(x<13)=0.5841
    If n=20 and p=.80, find P(x≤ 14)=0.1958
    If n=20 and p=.30, find P(5≤X≤8)=P(x<=8)-P(x<=4)=0.8867-0.2375=0.6492
    If n=20 and p=.70, find P(X≥15)=1-P(x<=14)=1-0.5836=0.4164.

    Ten trials are conducted in a Bernouli process in which the probability of success in a given trial is 0.6. If x= the number of successes, determine the following:
    E(x)=10*0.6=6
    σx= sqrt(10*0.6*0.4)=1.5492

    P(x=5)=0.2007
    P(4≤x≤8)=P(x<=8)-P(x<=3)=0.9536-0.0548=0.8988
    P(3≤x≤7)=P(x<=8)-P(x<=2)=0.9536-0.01223=0.9413

    The proportion of consumers favoring a new product is p = 0.80 A sample of n = 10 persons is randomly selected. Use the binomial formula to determine the probabilities for the following number of consumer favoring a product.
    Exactly 5
    P(x=5)=10C5*0.8^5*(1-0.8)^(10-5)=0.0264
    d. Greater then 2

    P(x>2)=1-P(x=0)-P(x=1)-P(x=2)=1-10C0*0.8^0*(1-0.8)^10-10C1*0.8*(1-0.8)^9-10C2*0.8^2*(1-0.8)^8=0.999922

    Greater than or equal to 3
    P(x>=3)=P(x>2)=0.999922
    Less than 4

    P(x<4)=P(x=0)+P(x=1)+P(x=2)+P(x=3)=10C0*0.8^0*0.2^10+10C1*0.8*0.2^9+10C2*0.8^2*0.2^8+10C3*0.8^3*0.2^7=0.0008644

    P(x<=9)=1-P(x=10)=1-10C10*0.8^10*0.2^0=0.8926
    f. Equal to 7
    P(x=7)=10C7*0.8^7*0.2^3=0.2013
