When Julia is writing a first draft, there is 0.7 probability that there will be

Cheyanne Leigh 2021-10-02 Answered

The chances that Julia will have no spelling mistakes on a page she is writing are 0.7. One day, Julia writes a first draft that is 4 pages long. 
Assuming that Julia is equally likely to have a spelling mistake on each of the 4 pages, what is the probability that she will have no spelling mistakes on at least one of them? 
P(at least one without mistakes)=_

Step 1 
Given Data : Probability of no spelling mistakes on a page P (no mistake) =0.7 
To Find : The probability of at least one without errors 
Let X be the number of pages among these 4 pages which Julia writes with zero mistakes 
Binomial Probability : The probability of exactly x successes on n repeated trials in an experiment which has two possible outcomes. It express as : 
Binomial Probability =nCxpx(1p)nx 
Step 2 
In the given question we have : 
Probability p=0.7 
n is the total number of pages i.e. n=4 
To find the at-least one page out of 4 pages with zero mistakes, X1 
Substitute the value of p,n and X in the expression of Binomial probability: 
Step 3 
Binomial Probability =nCxpx(1p)nx 
Probability for (X=x)=4Cxpx(1p)4x 
for x1 
So, Probability of at least one page with zero mistake is 0.9919 
Round of to the nearest hundredth 0.9919~0.99 
P(at-least one without mistake) =0.99

i'm seeking out thoughts for a 15-hour mathematical enrichment course in a chinese language high faculty. What (pretty) simple concern would you advocate as a subject for any such course?
historical past/issues:
My students are generally pretty good at math, but many of them have no longer been uncovered to rigorous or summary mathematical reasoning. an amazing topic would be one that could not be impossibly hard for students who have by no means written or study proofs in English.
i have taught this magnificence three times earlier than. (a part of the purpose that i'm posting that is that i have used up all my thoughts!) the primary semester I taught an introductory range theory elegance (which meandered its way toward a proof of quadratic reciprocity, though I think this become in the end too advanced/abstract for some of the students). the second one semester I taught fundamental graph idea and packages (with a focal point on planarity and coloring). The 1/3 semester I taught a class at the Rubik's dice.
the students' math backgrounds are pretty numerous: a number of them take part in contest math competitions, and so are familiar with IMO-fashion techniques, however many aren't. a number of them may additionally realize some calculus, however I cannot assume it. all of them are superb at what in the united states is on occasion termed "pre-calculus": trigonometry, conic sections, systems of linear equations (though, shockingly, no matrices), and the like. They realize what a binomial coefficient is.
So, any ideas? preferably, i'd like to find some thing a bit "sexy" (like the Rubik's cube) -- tries to encourage wide variety theory through cryptography seemed to fall on deaf ears, however being capable of "see" institution idea on the cube became pretty popular.
(Responses specifically welcome from folks who grew up in the percent -- any mathematical subjects you desire were protected within the excessive college curriculum?)
