Expert Answer

Step 1

Note:

Thank you for the question. Aa your question has more than 3 parts, according to our policy, we are answering the first 3 parts for you. If you need help with any other particular part, please re-post the question and mention the part you need help with.

Step 2

Introduction:

If X ~ Bin (n, p), then the probability mass function of X is:

p (x) = (nCx) px (1 – p)nx; for x = 0, 1, …, n; 0 < p <1; p (x) is 0 otherwise.

Here, number of trials is the number of questions in the weekly quiz, n = 10.

Step 3

Part a:

Consider the event of getting a question correct as a success.

In the quiz, P (getting a question wrong) = 0.8.

The remaining probability must be the probability of getting the question correct. Thus, P (getting a question correct) = 0.2 (= 1 – 0.8).

Thus, the probability of success is, p = 0.2.

Denote X as the number of correct answers, that is, the number of successes in n = 10 trials.
