I have some things that have a 7% chance of being blue, 10 of these things are put in a box. What is the percent chance that the box will have exactly one blue thing? Two blue things? and so on..(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I have simulated this and came up with the following (all appx)

0 - 37%

1 - 37%

2 - 18%

3 - 5%

4 - 1.2%

5 - 0.12%

What equations do I use to solve this exactly?
