However, we can use programs such as excel as discussed in class as follows P (x≤20)=BINOM.DIST(20,100,0.11,TRUE)= 0.99735 P( x > 20) = 1 − 0.99735 =0.0026469 b) is less than 9? P( x < 9) = BINOM.DIS (8,100,0.11, TRUE ) =0.21651 3) 28 points A manufacturer of camping gear wishes to buy rivets whose breaking strength must exceed 5000psi.
