The Information Commons in the main library has 150 personal computers The probability that any one of them will require repair on a given day is 002 To find the probability that exactly 25 of the computers will require repair one would use what type of probability distribution A Normal distribution B Binomial distribution C Poisson distribution D Hypergeometric distribution 22 Which of the following is a characteristic of every binomial distribution A Each outcome is mutually exclusive B Each outcome is dependent on the previous outcome C The probability of success increases from trial
