Step 1

A binomial distribution is used when an experiment has two possible outcomes, such as success and failures. The outcomes of the experiment should be independent of each other.

For a binomial distribution with n independent trials, the probability of getting x successes among those n trials is defined as:

Step 2

Given:

n= 6 and p = 0.36

(a)

The binomial distribution table can be constructed as:

Step 3

Therefore...
