Mimi just started her tennis class three weeks ago. On average, she is able to return 15% of her opponentâ€™s serves. Let random number X be the number of serves Mimi returns. As we know, the distribution of X is a binomial probability distribution. If her opponent serves 10 times, please answer the following questions:
18. What is the number of trials (n), probability of successes (p) and probability of failures (q), respectively? (5 pts)
19. Find the probability that she returns at least 2 of the 10 serves from her opponent . (10 pts)
20. Find the mean and standard deviation for the probability distribution. (10 pts)
Solution Description

(18) n = 10, p = 0.15, q = 1 &n
