Step 1

In this question, we have given that probability that a student going to college when parents make over \$75000 is equal to 0.60. We have randomly selected 6 students whose parents make over \$75000 and we have to calculate the probability that less than two will actually go to college.

Step 2

Probability less than 2 means either equal to 0 or 1. So, to get the probability we ...
