1. Assume lunching together each day is independent of whether they ate together the previous days or the next days. 2. p=probability of having lunch together in a particular day. 3. p does not change over the entire week 4. each trial (day) is a Bernoulli trial (i.e. either eat together or not eat together) then we can apply Binomial Probability with parameters p=0.4, n=7 (days). Let k=exactly number of days they lunched together P(r)=C(n,k)p^k (1-p)^(n-k) where C(n,k)=n!/(k!(n-k)!) B. lunched together exactly 7 days, set k=6, C(n,k)=7!/(7!0!)=1 P(7)=1(0.4)^7(0.6)^0=0.0016384 A. at least 6 days means either 6 days or 7 days. So add the probabilities P(6)+P(7) to get the answer.

I got .0208 Is that right ?

How did you get P(6), did you do C(7,6)*(0.4^6)*(0.6^1) ?

Well would you use both the 7 and the 6 in C(7,6) or would it be (7)*(0.4^6)*(0.6^1) and then (6)*(0.4^7)*(0.7^1)?

Do not forget the term C(n,k), and recall C(7,7)=7!/(7!0!)=1, and C(7,6)=7!/(6!1!)=7 because C(n,k)=n!/(k!(n-k)!)
