    Statistics Please Help

    Suppose the number of movies produced during a summer season is a P(8) random variable. Each movie ticket is $5. If a person has a budget of $25 for summer movies, what is the probability that he/she will be able to see all the movies during the season?

    I have no idea what a P(8) random variable is but I do know that if X is the random variable all the movies during the season then you need to calculate \Pr(X \leq 5).
