Stats Help

    Okay so I did this problem and got it wrong but I get one more chance to get it right. I tried using Binomial Dist to solve it but I failed.

    30% of all M&Ms are brown. If 7 M&Ms are randomly selected, what is the probability that at most 1 is brown?

    I thought I would use 0 and 1 but I guess not. Can someone help me?

    For Binomial Distribution,
    take n=7, p=0.3, q=1-p=0.7.
