Attempt: $\displaystyle C^6_1 \cdot 0.05^1 \cdot 0.95^5$

Correct is: 0.2036

2. ## Re: Combinations, bad components

I honestly can't figure out how they got that answer.

I think your attempt is correct.

You did not bother to tell witch one you are trying to do.

a) $\displaystyle \binom{6}{0}(.05)^0(.95)^{6-0}$

b) $\displaystyle \binom{6}{1}(.05)^1(.95)^{6-1}$

c) $\displaystyle \sum\limits_{k = 2}^6 {\binom{6}{k}(.05)^k(.95)^{6-k}}$ or
$\displaystyle 1-\left(\binom{6}{0}(.05)^0(.95)^{6-0}+\binom{6}{1}(.05)^1(.95)^{6-1}\right)$

Tried b). Thanks both of you, now I know I'm right.

I honestly can't figure out how they got that answer.
