Can you do a, b, c?

Step 1

The provided information are;

Probability of success (*p*) = 0.5

Number of trials (*n*) = 10

Step 2

Consider, *X *be the random variable that represents the number of chicks that will be female is binomially distributed with the parameters *n* = 10 and *p* = 0.5.

(a)

The probability that 6 chicks will be female can be calculated as:

Step 3

(b)

The probability that 8 or more c...
