    Approximately 10% of American High School students drop out of school before graduation. Choose 10 students entering High School at random. Find the probability that at least 6 will graduate. Meaning P(graduating) = 100%-10% = 90% or p=.90 I changed it from 10.3% to 10% so p is 90% or .90, so that you can use the table to find the answer instead of the formula. Remember use 90% and use the table in the back of the text, Table B, not the formula for this one.
