Medical literature indicates that 45% of men suffer from alopecia. For random sample of 8 men, calculate the probability that:
(a) exactly four men suffer from alopecia.
(b) at most two men suffer from alopecia.

Correct answer:

p4 =  0.2627
p =  0.2201

Step-by-step explanation:

C4(8)=(48)=4!(84)!8!=43218765=70 q=45%=10045=0.45 n=8  p4=(4n) q4 (1q)n4=70 0.454 (10.45)84=0.2627
C0(8)=(08)=0!(80)!8!=11=1 C1(8)=(18)=1!(81)!8!=18=8 C2(8)=(28)=2!(82)!8!=2187=28 p0=(0n) q0 (1q)n0=1 0.450 (10.45)800.0084 p1=(1n) q1 (1q)n1=8 0.451 (10.45)810.0548 p2=(2n) q2 (1q)n2=28 0.452 (10.45)820.1569  p=p0+p1+p2=0.0084+0.0548+0.1569=0.2201
