total number of permutations when a dice is rolled 8 times = 6^8

even numbers : 2, 4, 6 so, out of 8 times u perform experiment, 7 times  u have 3 choices : 3^7 one time you have 6 choices : 6 total permutations in favor = 3^7 * 6

At least 7 even is the same as at most 1 odd. 0 odd = 1/256 1 odd = 8/256 Total = 9/256

p(getting at least 7 even numbers) = \(\frac{3^7*6}{6^8}\) = \(\frac{3^7}{6^7}\) = \(\frac{3^7}{3^7.2^7}\) =\(\frac{1}{2^7}\) =\(\frac{1}{256}\)

there are 3 even numbers on a dice and 3 odd and you dividethe 3 even by 8 times and that will give you the answer

6times 8 is 48 and divide by 3 and you will get 16 so the answer is 1/16

okay...so what if you were looking for 8 odd numbers? wouldn't it be the same process?

well i got the same answer..1/16...is that right?

Binomial distribution: P(n,i)=(n,i)p^i q^(ni) (n,i)=n!/(i!(ni)!) Here, p=q=1/2 (8,0)=1 (8,1)=8 (8,2)=8*9/2=36, ... So any number of even or odd can be calculated.

You have to have 7 throws even and the 8th one can be either. \[ \frac 1{2^7} 8=\frac 1 {16} \]

You multiply by 8 to count where the even or odd throw is.
