77% of all students at a college still need to take another math class. If 5 students are randomly selected, find the probability that

a. Exactly 2 of them need to take another math class.

b. At most 2 of them need to take another math class.

c. At least 3 of them need to take another math class.

Step 1

**Binomial distribution:**

The binomial distribution gives the probability of number of successes out of *n* trials in a series of Bernoulli trials.

The probability mass function (pmf) of a binomial random variable *X* is given as:

Step 2

**a.Computing the probability that exactly 2 of them need to take another math class:**

It is given that 77% of the students need to take another math class.

A sample of 5 students is selected.

Thus, n = 5 and p = 0.77.

Define the random variable *X *as the number of students needs to take another math class.

The probability that exactly 2 of them need to take another math class is obtained as follows:

Step 3

**b.Computing the probability that at most 2 of them need to take another math class:**

The probability t...
