Question: Here is my answer, i use the binomial probability method to do my answer: b(15,100,0.1)+(16,100,0.1).........+(24,100,0.1)+(25,100,0.1). so, it is right or wrong'
yours You are correct in using the binomial distribution for this problem. In the language that is commonly used, "success" is a carton with exactly 3 cups with fewer than 20 banana chunks in it, and you are to find the probability of between 15 and 25 successes in 100 trials. You have answered the problem as if 0.10 is the probability of success, but 0.10 is the probability that a cup has fewer than 20 chunks. Your solution is correct except that 0.1 needs to be replaced by the probability that a carton has exactly 3 cups with fewer than 20 banana chunks in it. Cheers,Harley
