1. ## Can some one explain hwo to find probability?

A salesperson has to sell a minimum of 50 cars to earn the sales bonus. To date this month he/she has sold 46 cars. Today the salesperson has appointments with 10 prospective customers. He estimates that he/she has a 55% chance of success with each customer.
What is the probability that he/she will earn his/her bonus today?

2. This is a Binomial distribution with probability of success p=0.55, n=10; you need to obtain probability of getting 4.

It should be at least four.

5. Can you guys explain how to actually do the question as I have no idea. Like the formula or something. I already have the answer I just need to know how to do it.

6. I am providing you with the probability mass function of Binomial distribution with parameters $\displaystyle n$ and $\displaystyle p$. You just need to perform a suitable summation over it, taking appropriate upper and lower limits of $\displaystyle k$.

$\displaystyle \displaystyle\sum\limits_{k = 4}^{10} {\binom{10}{k}\left( {0.55} \right)^k \left( {0.45} \right)^{10 - k} }=0.898005054422266$
