1. ## Binomial distribution.

Suppose you purchase a bundle of 16 bare-root broccoli plants. The sales clerk tells you that on average you can expect 7% of the plants to die before producing any broccoli. Assume that the bundle is a random sample of plants. Use the binomial formula to find the probability that you will lose at most 1 of the broccoli plants.

Help plz

$\displaystyle \text{P(lose 0)} + \text{P(lose 1)} = {16\choose 0 } (\frac{7}{100})^0 (1-\frac{7}{100})^{16-0} + {16\choose 1 } (\frac{7}{100})^1 (1-\frac{7}{100})^{16-1}$
