A tutor is checking a practicant's work (declarations) and chooses 3 out of 12 declarations. There are 2 faulty ones. N=12, n=3 S=2 P(X=0) = 12/22 P(X=1) = 9/22 P(X=2) = 1/22 E(X)=0.5 V(X)=15/44 How many declarations must the tutor check, in order for his probability to find at least one faulty declaration to be at least 2/3? Btw, answer in book says n>=5, any help?

Hi; The book is right. For five picks we can get 2 wrong 3 right or 1 wrong 4 right.
