Why bother with a post grad? Are they even worth it? Have your say! 26-10-2016
1. In a particular area 30% of men and 20% of women are overweight and there are four men and 3 women working in an office there. Find the probability that there are
i) 0
ii) 1
iii)2 overweight men
iv)0
v)1
vi)2 overweight women
Assuming that these are taken randomly from the population.

I understand the concept of Binomial Distribution however I still don't understand what this question is asking given there is no limit on population.
