If a random sample of 8 adult workers is selected, what is the probability that less than 6 of them have a high school diploma? (That is, what is P(X<6) (keep 4 decimal places) Question 2 of 20 1.0/ 1.0 Points Suppose a random variable, x, arises from a binomial experiment. If n = 25, and p = 0.85, find the P(X ≥ 15) using Excel. Round answer to 4 decimal places. Question 3 of 20 0.0/ 1.0 Points It is known that 20% of adult workers have a high school diploma. If a random sample of 10 adult workers is selected, what is the probability that 5 or more of them have a high school diploma? (That is, find P(X≥5) (keep 4 decimal places) Question 4 of 20 1.0/ 1.0 Points If random variable X has a binomial distribution with n =8 and P(success) = p =0.5, find the probability that X is at most 3.
