What is the probability that at most two of the microwaves are defective?

It's just binomial distribution, no?

3. radh Group Title

Yeah, but how would I get it with x<=2. I know how to do x=2, but not x<=2.

4. wio Group Title

$\Pr(X\leq 2) = \Pr(X=0, X=1, X=2) = \Pr(X =0) + \Pr(X = 1) +\Pr(X = 2)$

Ah, alright. Thanks. I get it now.

They're mutually exclusive events. They can't have both exactly 2 and exactly 1 defective microwave.
