network solution

hi Den,

It looks like this is a binomial probability question. http://www.mathsisfun.com/data/binomial … ution.html

If p is the probability of one network working, then the probability of exactly M working out of N is

But you would also be happy if more than M are working so you need to add up all Ps from M up to N:

Hope that's what you wanted.  smile
