Moral of the story, never question what mothers think , because they just know! she definitely is right

It's a short Bio-statistics course , as a part of a postgraduate education , but math & statistics have always given me hard time hehe

Hello Bobbym,

the other part is
'at most 2 are malnourished' ?

there's another problem, it goes like

'The number of bacteria in culture growing by 16 each 4 days, in one day,

a)    Find the probability of 2 growing bacterias
b)    Find the probability of more than 3 growing bacteria '

i don't know what's up with me , but i can't seem to find my way around probabilities , & it's really devastating .

Hello everyone

am a beginner and have been trying to solve this one but couldn't :S

'In a population of 3000 children under 5 , those with malnutrition are 31%, if 5 children are selected randomly what is the probability of:
a)3 children with malnutrition ' ?

there's a second part to this question but I'll leave it for later ..
