Find $P(X = 1)$, where $X$ is a Binomial variable with parameters $n = 3$, $p = \dfrac{1}{4}$.
Find $1 - p$.
$1 - p = \class{inputBox step1}{~\bbox[border:2px solid blue]{\strut\rlap{\class{inputReplace}{A1}}\hspace{54px}}~}$ $1 - p = \dfrac{3}{4}$
Hint: For a Binomial distribution, $P(X = r) = {}^n \mathrm{C}_r \times p^r \times (1-p)^{n-r}$.
$P(X = \class{inputBox step2}{~\bbox[border:2px solid blue]{\strut\rlap{\class{inputReplace}{Br0c0}}\hspace{35px}}~}) = \class{inputBox step2}{~\bbox[border:2px solid blue]{\strut\rlap{\class{inputReplace}{Br0c1}}\hspace{100px}}~} \times \class{inputBox step2}{~\bbox[border:2px solid blue]{\strut\rlap{\class{inputReplace}{Br0c2}}\hspace{100px}}~} \times \class{inputBox step2}{~\bbox[border:2px solid blue]{\strut\rlap{\class{inputReplace}{Br0c3}}\hspace{100px}}~} = \class{inputBox step2}{~\bbox[border:2px solid blue]{\strut\rlap{\class{inputReplace}{Br0c4R}}\hspace{100px}}~}$ $P(X = 1) = 3 \times \dfrac{1}{4} \times \dfrac{9}{16} = \dfrac{27}{64}$
