I just go crazy with a sample question, please help me out of my misery:
A stock price rose in three of the previous four quarters; the probability of an increase in price is 65%. Based on the data collected and using a Bernoulli trial , the probability that the stock price will rise in three or fewer quarters is closest to: A. 3.1%. B. 27.5%. C. 42.2%.
Right is 3,1% but I don´t get why the calculation has to be like:
P(x) = (4 over 3) * P^4 * (1-p)^3 as the formula is stated as P(x)= (n over x) * p^x * (1-p)^n-x
