1. The probability of winning exactly 21 times is 0.14 when the probability of winning the arcade game is 0.659.
We know that binomial probability is given by:
Probability (P) = ⁿCₓ (probability of 1st)ˣ x (1 – probability of 1st)ⁿ⁻ˣ
We are given that:
Probability of winning on an arcade game = P(A) = 0.659
So, the Probability of loosing on an arcade game will be = P'(A) = 1 – 0.659 = 0.341
Number of times the game is being played = 30
We have to find the Probability of winning exactly 21 times.
Here,
n = 30
x = 21
P(A) = 0.659
P'(A) = 0.341
Using the binomial probability formula, we get that:
Probability of winning exactly 21 times :
P(21 times) = ³⁰C₂₁ (0.659)²¹ x (0.341)⁷
P( 21 times ) = 0.14
Therefore, the probability of winning exactly 21 times is 0.14

2. The probability of winning exactly 21 times is 0.14

### What is Binomial Probability?

Binomial probability refers to the probability of exactly ‘x’ successes on ‘n’ repeated trials in an experiment which has two possible outcomes (commonly called a binomial experiment).
Probability ‘P’ = ⁿCₓ (probability of 1st)ˣ x (1 – probability of 1st)ⁿ⁻ˣ
For example:
What is the probability of getting 6 heads, when you toss a coin 10 times?
In a coin-toss experiment, there are two outcomes: heads and tails. Assuming the coin is fair , the probability of getting a head is 1/2 or 0.5 .
The number of repeated trials: n=10
The number of success trials: x = 6
The probability of success on individual trial: p = 0.5
Use the formula for binomial probability.
¹⁰C₆ (0.5)⁶ x (1 – 0.5)¹⁰⁻⁶
Simplify.
≈0.205
Here, we have given that:
Probability of winning on an arcade game is 0.659
so, Probability of loosing on an arcade game is 1-0.659 = 0.341
Number of times game played = 30
Probability of winning exactly 21 times = ?
now, n = 30
x = 21
probability of 1st or probability of winning = 0.659
1 – probability of 1st or probability of loosing = 0.341
using, binomial probability formula
Probability of winning exactly 21 times = ³⁰C₂₁ (0.659)²¹ x (0.341)⁷
on solving,
Probability of winning exactly 21 times = 0.14
Hence,
The probability of winning exactly 21 times is 0.14
