A canoe club sponsor has taken canoeing groups through a particularly rough section of white water on a mountain river. Past trips and experience of the sponsor lead her to believe that 51% of the canoeists who attempt to paddle their way through this section will overturn. At the present time, there are 8 canoes approaching this treacherous section. Assume that the sponsor's estimate of the probability of a canoe overturning in this section of water is accurate. What is the standard deviation of the number of canoes that will capsize?

I can't figure out where to pull the values to plug into the population mean, so that I can then solve for SD.
The only values I have to use is P(x) = 0.51, and 8 canoes..
