46% of men consider themselves professional baseball fans. You randomly select 10 men and ask each if he considers himself a professional baseball fan. Find the probability that the number who consider themselves baseball fans is (a) exactly five, (b) at least six, and (c) less than four (A). P(5) = 10C5 (0.46)^5(0.54)^5 = 252(0.46)^5(0.54)^5 = 0.238

Exactly k, $\displaystyle P_k=\binom{10}{k}.46^k\times .54^{10k}$ For b, $\displaystyle \sum_{k=6}^{10}P_k$ For c, $\displaystyle \sum_{k=0}^{3}P_k$
