My Math Forum Shooting on a divided target

The probability of falling into each of them is the same and is equal to 1/20. 15 shots are produced (we can hit one part several times). What is the probability that 8 parts will be shot through? P.s. A part is shot through when we hit on it at least one time.

Then $\displaystyle X \sim Binomial(n = 15, p = 0.05)$. Can you continue?
