The lottery is 60000 elk in which 6200 wins. What is the probability that the purchase of 12 elks won nothing?

Result

p =  27 %

#### Solution:

$p = 100 \cdot \ (1 - 6200/60000)^{ 12 }; \doteq 27.013 = 27 \%$ Our examples were largely sent or created by pupils and students themselves. Therefore, we would be pleased if you could send us any errors you found, spelling mistakes, or rephasing the example. Thank you!
