    Hi guys,

    Im really struggling with binomial distribution when it comes to the language.

    So for example,
    This question:

    If the distribution is X~B(20,0.9)

    1) Find the probability (P) of more than 15-So would you do the P(X>15)=1-P(X<15)

    2)Find the P of less than 18-Would you do the probability of less than 17

    3) P of between 12 and 18, inclusive-This is part I struggle with the most!


    So if the probability is between two values...Would you do the P of 18 minus P of 11?

    Guys a big thank you...
