The three-year recidivism rate of parolees in a certain state is about

20%;

that is,
20%

of parolees end up back in prison within three years. Assume that whether one parolee returns to prison is independent of whether any of the others return. Complete parts a and b below.Find the probability that exactly

6

out of 20 parolees will end up back in prison within three years.The probability that exactly

6

out of 20 parolees will end up back in prison is
nothing.

Step 1

**Solution:**

**Binomial distribution:**

The binomial distribution gives the probability of number of successes out of *n* trials in a series of Bernoulli trials.

The probability mass function (pmf) of a binomial random variable *X* is given as:

Step 2

**The probability that exactly 6 out of 20 parolees will end up back in prison within three years is obtained below:**

From the given information, the three-year recidivism rate of parolees in a certain state is 0.20, number of parolees is 20. Let...
