Let's say I survey 20 people out of a 35-person population. 16 people answered yes to a particular question. What is the probability that only 16 people out of the total population would answer yes?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Attempt at a solution: The number of those not surveyed have an equal

probability of answering yes or no. Thus the probability of

those not surveyed all answering no is .003%.
