It has 23 policy holders who fall into this age range. What is the probability that
the company will receive the following number of claims in the next year as a result
of deaths within this group?
ev
(a) more than one claim 1 mark

Is this binomial? If so you could use the tables? Or is that only when you're disproving a hypothesis? Or is that T-test? I only did stats 2 years ago, you think I'd still remember!
