    This is an example of binomial probability (pass/fail), with n=8 and p (failure) = 0.3.

    The probability that none will fail is binompdf (8,0.3,0) = 0.0576.

    The prob. that all will fail is found by subtracting this result from 1.0000, and is 1.0000-0.0576=0.9424. "All" is the "complement" of "None."

    I used my TI-83 Plus calculator's probability distribution functions to calculate the probability that none will fail.
