Binomial Practice Question
In football, after scoring a touchdown, a team has the option to try to score a “two-point conversion.” If successful, the team scores two points, zero if not successful. Suppose the probability of a successful conversion is .4. In a game, suppose a team scores 4 touchdowns and tries a two-point conversion on each touchdown.What is the probability that at least two of these attempts will be successful?What is the mean and standard deviation of the total number of points resulting from these four attempts.
