I'm weak when it comes to solving probability questions that has to do with percentage. please help me.
1. Muscular dystrophy is a genetically controlled disease. The probability of having this disease in any new born of a specific parents is 25%. If the couple has 5 children, find the probabilities that:
(a) 5 will have a muscular dystrophy
(b) Fewer than 2 will have a muscular dystrophy
2. If 20% of the bolts produced by a machine are defective, determine the probability that out of 4 bolts:
(a) 1 is defective
(b) None of the bolts is defective
At most 2 bolts will be defective
A hint is something which gives the OP some direction to solve the problem him/herself. Such as for 1.b) you will need to use the Binomial Distribution.
