Below are some of the videos from our collection. We saw that students not only needed content but also videos. So, we decided to build a video platform for you also an algorithm which shows best videos suites to you related to the content you are browsing check out some videos which suit best for you.

This problem uses the binomial probability formula,
Pr( k success in n trials) = nCk * p^k * q^(n-k)
We are given a sample size of 100 cars and told that 1% of the cars are defective and asked what is the probability of more than 2 cars being defective
let's look at a success as failure of a car, then p = .01 and q = 0.99
Pr( k > 2 ) = 1 - Pr(k=0) - Pr(k=1) - Pr(k=2)
Pr(k=0) = 100C0 * (.01)^0 * (.99)^(100-0) = 0.3660323412732289
Pr(k=1) = 100C1 * (.01)^1 * (.99)^(100-1) = 0.36972963764972616
Pr(k=2) = 100C2 * (.01)^2 * (.99)^(100-2) = 0.18486481882486308
Pr(k > 2 ) = 1 − 0.920626798 = 0.079373202 approx 0.0794
