Question

Each time a surgery is performed, there is a probability of 0.02 that there will be a complication. Every surgery is an independent event . Let s1 be the probability ofconductiong a srugery  without a complication. S2 be the probability of conducting two straight es with no complication, S3 is the probability of performing three straight surgeries without complications.

  1. Find s1, s2, s3, s4, and s5. 

 

  1. Write formula for sn, the probability of n straight surgeries without a complication, where n is pos integer (that is,  number like 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, Please explain your reasoning

 

3.. Find number of surgeries k so that sk is less than 0.5. Hint:can be done with algebra, but recommended to use calculator or computer 

Explain how youcame to this result.
