Step 1

In this question, we need to find the probability that at least 6 samples need to examine to find the 2 samples mutated. The probability that a sample is mutated is 0.2.

Step 2

If we need to find the probability that at least 6 samples need to examine to find the 2 samples mutated which means in first 5 samples that have examined only one or... help_outlineImage Transcriptionclose1-P(Zero sample found mutated in first five)+P(One sample found mutated in first five) =1-[iC,x0.20° x0.80 + °Cc, x0.20' x 0.80 ] =1-0.73728 =0.26272 fullscreen
