    Use binomial distribution P(x) = nCx*p^x*(1-p)^n-x n = total num of households x = households watching 60 min p = probability household is watching 60 min based on recent ratings Part 1: n=15 x=8 p=0.2 P(8) = 15C8*(.2)^8*(.8)^7 = 0.0035 Part 2: n=15 x=4 p=0.2 P(4) = 15C4*(.2)^4*(.8)^11 = 0.1876 Part 3: mean = n*p mean = 15*0.2 = 3 Hope this helps
