1) Suppose we want to determine the (binomial) probability (p) of getting 0 (zero) heads in 5 flips of a 2-sided coin. Using the Binomial Probability table, what values of n, x, and p would we use to look up this probability, and what would be the probability?
2) In testing a new drug, researchers found that 10% of all patients using it will have a mild side effect. A random sample of 12 patients using the drug is selected. If you wanted to find the probability that exactly three will have this mild side effect, what would be the values of n, x, and p that you would use to look this probability up in the Binomial Probability table, AND what would be the probability?
