f the students make their choices independently and each is as likely to pick one integer
as any other, what is the probability that 8 or more will select 4,5 or 6?
b Having observed eight students who selected 4, 5, or 6, what conclusion do you draw based
on your answer to part (a)?A missile protection system consists of n radar sets operating independently, each with a
probability of .9 of detecting a missile entering a zone that is covered by all of the units.
a If n = 5 and a missile enters the zone, what is the probability that exactly four sets detect
the missile? At least one set?
b How large must n be if we require that the probability of detecting a missile that enters the
zone be .999?
