From a prior national study, we are able to infer that the probability of a high school student going
to college, when the parents make over $75,000 per year, is about 0.60. Assume that Toms River has
125 graduating seniors next year, and all the parents are assumed to make over $75,000. If six
students are randomly selected, what is the probability that less than two of them will actually go to
college?
2.

Step 2

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