Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2there are 2 ways to approach this

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2out of 7 days in a week, it would be easier to calculate the compliment statement of: P(rain at most 1 day out of 7)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2... or is the compliment; does not rain at most 1 day out of the week?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2P(0) + P(1) at most 1 day of rain P(2) + P(3) + P(4) + P(5) + P(6) + P(7) at least 2 days of rain in any case .... the long way is: \[\sum_{2}^{7}~\binom{7}{r}~.2^r~.8^{7r}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@amistre64 how do we solve the equation ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2im thinking the 1  P0+P1 is quicker "by hand"\[1\binom{7}{0}~.2^0.8^7\binom{7}{1}~.2^1.8^6\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Actually I don't know summation and other things could you give it to me in a simple version @amistre64

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2the (7 0) is just another way to write 7 "choose" 0, by this time you should have already gone thru the permuatation and combination material 7 C 0 is a common notation, but some texts use C(7,0) does any of that look familiar?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0No,nothing looks familiar to me.Could you write the equation in a multiplication/addition/division/subtraction format @amistre64

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2I already did. But if you do not know how to determine the number of ways to choose 0 from a set of 7, or the number of ways to choose 1 from a set of 7; then you really need to go back and review that material. The rest of the setup is elementary ....

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Can you solve the equation step by step @amistre64

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2not without having to try to teach you a chapters worth of material first. consider this tho: if you have 7 things in front of you, what is the number of ways you can simply walk away and choose none of them?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2:) there is really only 1 way to choose none of them, the choice to walk away is only 1 option. 7 "choose" 0 is equal to 1; in fact anything "choose" 0 = 1

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2how, consider these 7 things, but you can only choose one of them; how many ways is there to choose 1 of them?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2lets have 7 things to choose from: a b c d e f g we can choose a or we can choose b or we can choose c or we can choose d or we can choose e or we can choose f or we can choose g 7 "choose" 1 is equal to ..7 do you agree?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2oh, you do agree :) good.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2now we can do the elementary stuff \[ 1  (1~.2^0~.8^7+7~.2^1~.8^6)\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ok so what will it be ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2most likely it will be whatever the calculator generates as an answer for you after you punch in the correct keys :/
