## Expert Answer

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...
