    Mathwords: Binomial Probability Formula
    Quit in 8th grade sir and have a GED. Furthest math I've done so far in college is intermediate Algebra. Wait, so did we have an answer? Explain it for us newbies, please. I'll check back tonight after work. I was actually curious about this because it became annoying after I'd hatch like 5 eggs, and none of them had the nature I wanted. :p

    This is correct.

    So you're basically asking for 1 minus the chances that it will happen 0 times or 1 time.

    chances it will happen exactly 1 time: 5*1/2^5 = 5/32
    chances it will happen 0 times: 1/2^5 = 1/32
    chances it won't happen 1 or 0 times: 1-(5/32+1/32) = 26/32

    i think.
    So is this.

    What? When you see an X you think that is a letter? Everyone knows that X is a number lol.
