The reason we ask you to show some work is to get some idea what the difficulty you have. Your question can be read at least two ways.
1) Given a number from 1 to 152, what is the probability that number would be randomly and independently selected exactly six times in 15 chances?
OR
2) A number is selected from 1 to 152, what is the probability that same number would be randomly and independently selected exactly 5 more times in 14 chances?
The answers are similar but not the same.

I appreciate the help with the formula for your number one. That is the answer I want but I can't do the math on my calculator. I don't know how to do the power of 6 or 9 parts. I would really appreciate the answer being posted or how to do this problem on a scientific calculator. Thanks for any help
I got two of the three numbers I need however, I do not know how to read or factor in the number answer for 1/152 to the sixth power. My calculator shows it as this
8.1084617495525e-14
What do I do with this number? I can't multiply that by the other two numbers in the equation which are
15/6 = 2.5
151/152 to the ninth power = .942323960625871
How do I compute these three numbers using scientific calculator??
