Given:

$n=10$

$p=55\%=0.55$

Determine the probabilities using table 2 in the appendix in the row with $n=10$ and in the column with $p=0.55$:

$P(0)=0.000$

$P(1)=0.004$

$P(2)=0.023$

$P(3)=0.075$

$P(4)=0.160$

$P(5)=0.234$

$P(6)=0.238$

$P(7)=0.166$

$P(8)=0.076$

$P(9)=0.021$

$P(10)=0.003$
