Random Variables Expected Value in Decision Making The Binomial Distribution The Poisson Distribution The Normal Distribution Many utility companies promote energy conservation by offering discount rates to consumers who keep their energy usage below certain established subsidy standards. A recent EPA report notes that 70% of the island residents of Puerto Rico have reduced their electricity usage sufficiently to qualify for discounted rates. If ten residential subscribers are randomly selected from San Juan, Puerto Rico, what is the probability that at least four qualify for the favorable rates? Test yourself Extra Reading
