Hello, matty888!

A sample of 5 accounts is chosen without replacement from a set of 20.

From past experience it is known that 20% of the accounts are in error.

What is the probability that not more than two errors will occur in the sample?

There are 20 accounts: .

There are: . possible samples.

We want the probability that there are:

. . 0 errors or 1 error or 2 errors.

0 E and 5 G: . ways.

1 E and 4 G: . ways.

2 E and 3 G: . ways.

Hence, there are: . ways to get 0, 1 or 2 Errors.

Therefore: .
