1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Gerry Infeild has batting average of 0.326 what is the probability that he will have two hits in his next 5 times at bat?Give your answer correct to 3 decimal places. 3. The attempt at a solution It is a binomial distribution with n trails and x sucesses (hence, n-x failures) with each sucess having a probability p and each failure having a probability q. so, p(x) = (nCx)(p^x)(q^n-x) where q=1-P Therefore 5 trials and 2 hits hence 3 failures. P(x) = (5C2)(2/5)^2(3/5)^2 = 30 x 4/25 x 27/125 = 3240/3125 = 1.036 is that right? Then what about his batting average?? Where do we use that?
