Ok, not really homework but I did not want to crowd general math.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I have an experiment that has 96% chance of working. If I try it one hundred times what is the chance of one being a failure.

I know with a one in two shot it is .5^2=.25 You now have a 25 percent chance of failure. Any help. Sorry at the moment my brain seems dead.
