In Exercises 21–24, assume that when adults with smartphones are randomly selected, 54% use them in meetings or classes (based on data from an LG Smartphone survey).

If 8 adult smartphone users are randomly selected, find the probability that exactly 6 of them use their smartphones in meetings or classes.

Step 1

Define the random variable *x* as the number of adults who use their smartphone during meetings or classes. Here, the number of adult smartphone users (*n*) is 8 and each adult is independent of the other. Also, there are two possible outcomes (adults who use smartphones during meetings ...
