Problem  2BSC

Consistent Notation If we use the binomial probability formula (Formula 5-5) for finding the probability described in Exercise 1, what is wrong with letting p denote the probability of getting an adult who includes Wal-Mart while x counts the number of adults who do not include Wal-Mart?

Exercise 1

Calculating Probabilities Based on a Saint Index survey, assume that when adults are asked to identify the most unpopular projects for their hometown, 54% include Wal-Mart among their choices. Suppose we want to find the probability that when five adults are randomly selected, exactly two of them include Wal-Mart. What is wrong with using the multiplication rule to find the probability of getting two adults who include Wal-Mart followed by three people who do not include Wal-Mart, as in this calculation: (0.54)(0.54)(0.46)(0.46)(0.46)?
