    You don't use a calculator to solve a problem. You use a calculator to do the calculations after you have determined a strategy. What do you know about the "binomial distribution"?

    You can use calculators to evaluate formulas, some even have formulas built in, by YOU have to know which formula to use! Again, what do you know about the "binomial distribution"?
