Compute the probability of any specific sequence of hits and misses, such as HMHHHM, by multiplying the probabilities of each throw: 5/7 for each hit ("H") and 1 - 5/7 = 2/7 for each miss ("M"). Because there are four hits (and therefore two misses), the multiplication includes four factors of 5/7 and two factors of 2/7; briefly, the product equals 5^4 * 2^2 / 7^6. There are 15 distinct sequences of four hits and two misses. Therefore the probability of getting some sequence of exactly four hits equals 15 times this previous value: 15 * 5^4 * 2^2 / 7^6 = 37500 / 117649 = about 31.87%.

Accuracy is hitting the same, correct point, sort of like hitting the bulls eye of a target. Precision is less stringent, as long as your data points are clustered together (it's also known as the level of uncertainty or variance), it is deemed precise. Scientifically speaking, experiments have to be both accurate and precise.

Target is not a compound word.

People often make the error of assuming that analyzing things means removing creativity from the development process. Actually, the use of exact statistical analysis does not reduce creativity. In business, it allows you to better target your audience so that you can tailor your approach to your target demographic.

There are 34,509 seats at the Target Field.

the question asks probability of at least one gun hitting the target. = 1 - no gun hitting the target = 1 - (1/10) x (3/10) = 97/100 or 97 %

i think since they are mutually exclusive events the probability would by 9/10*7/10 = 63/100

You can calculate this probability by multiplying the individual probabilities of each marksman hitting the target: 0.8 * 0.8 * 0.8 * 0.8. When you multiple these probabilities, you get 0.4096, or 40.96%. This is the probability that all four marksmen will hit the target.

P(at least two hits out of 6)=1-P(1 or fewer hits out of 6)=1-binomcdf(6, .3, 1)=1-.420175=0.579825

The probability is 0.0035
