1. Suppose that a student needs to buy 6 books for her history course. The number of books that she will be able to find used is a binomial random variable X with n = 6 and p = 0.30. What is the probability that she will find more than 2 used books? P(X>2)=1-P(X<=2), then go to minitab for the following command It will give you Cumulative Distribution Function Binomial with n = 6 and p = 0.3 x P( X <= x ) 2 0.74431 Which means P(X<=2)=0.74431, so P(X>2)=1-0.74431=0.25569
