    Each item out of fifty has a 1/50 chance of being selected once. A 1/50 * 1/50 chance of being selected twice and a 1*50*1/50*1/50 chance of being selected three times. Assuming you’re putting the same item back into the “pot” each time.

    If the mean SAT verbal score is 505 and the standard deviation is 111… What is the probability that randomly selected student will have a score of less than 414.
