but since each of their's chance is NOT 100% then .....??
i think it's 1-20c3 * 0.25*0.25*0.25
Nope, but I'm going to be in at least 2 hours :P
haha good cramming ;P I was gonna try to answer and then decided I didn't want to make you fail x) Good luck though! oh and *succeed ;)
So 1-20c3*0,25*0,25*0,25 = 16,8125 % ?
oh.....i was 16,8125 ?!
*it

oh i l tell u my reasoning......... each one has a 75% probalilty of success...... so for 17 to scuceed........u need to select 17 students.......... multiply it with probabilty of success......ie 0.75^17..........or............3 fails ie 1- 20c3* 0.25^3
@satellite73 m i correct?
this is going to take a bunch of computation "at least' 17 means 17 or 18 or 19 or 20 use binomial for each \(P(x=20)=(.75)^{20}\) \[p(x=19)=20\times .75^{19}\times .25\] \[P(x=18)=\dbinom{20}{2}.75^{18}\times .25^2\] \[P(x=17)=\dbinom{20}{3}.75^{17}\times .25^3\] add these up
Ah, alright!
this is what i get, but check the calculations http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=.75^20%2B20*.75^19*.25%2B190*.75^18*.25^2%2B1140*.75^17*.25^3
Yeah. Same! Thank you very much!
