Question

The probability that a student is not a swimmer is 1/5. The probability that out of 5 students exactly 4 is swimmer is

Solution

Correct option is

Let p = probability that a student selected at random is a swimmer = 1 – 1/5 = 4/5.

             n = number of students selected = 5

and       X = number of swimmers

Then X – B (np) when n = 5 and p = 4/5 probability that exactly 4 students are swimmer is
