The participants in a television quiz show are picked from a large pool of applicants with approximately equal numbers of men and women. Among the last 11 participants there have been only 2 women. If participants are picked randomly, what is the probability of getting 2 or fewer women when 11 people are picked?
[quote=mr fantastic;132098]Let X be the random variable number of women picked.
X ~ Binomial(n = 11, p = 1/2) (since pool is large p can be assumed to stay the same)
Calculate .[/quote
