    okay, so the question asks for the probability that AT LEAST 2 friends choose entrance B. that means either 2 or all 3 of them choose entrance B. for 2 friends, the combinations can be:
    B B other
    Rick Brenda Ali
    Ali Rick Brenda
    Brenda Ali Rick

    so now, just find the values from the table, plug them in to find the probability for each row. add those together with the probability that all 3 come through entrance B, and there you have the answer. :)

    when making histograms of data that has unequal class width. in such cases you have the option to either draw the histogram using frequency density, or using standards. standards are usually used when all the class widths are multiples of one. for example, if the class widths are 10, 5, 30, 15, 20 respectively, you can use 5 units= 1 standard. so the heights of the bars in the histogram will be obtained by dividing the frequency with 2, 1, 6, 3, 4 respectively. does that make sense? and if you want to use frequency density, you can divide the frequency by the class width to obtain the height of the bar. frequency density is usually the fool-proof method that i prefer... it's just plugging in numbers without using any common sense =P

    you get the part where at least two friends means either 2 or all 3 friends use the same entrance B? so P(at least 2 friends)= P(2 friends) + P(3 friends)
    we know the three friends are Ali, Brenda, and Rick.
    so if all three go through entrance B, P= 2/9 x 1/4 x 2/35= 1/315
    if two go through entrance B, and one goes through some other entrance, the possible combinations are:
    Ali and Brenda use entrance B, and rick goes through some other entrance: P= 2/35 x 1/4 x (1-2/9)= 1/90
    Ali and Rick use entrance B, Brenda goes through some other entrance: P= 2/35 x 2/9 x (1-1/4)= 1/105
    Rick and Brenda use entrance B, Ali goes through some other entrance: P= 2/9 x 1/4 x (1-2/35)= 11/210
    so P(2 friends)= 1/90 + 1/105 +11/210 = 23/315
    so P(at least 2)= 23/315 + 1/315 = 24/315 = 8/105.
    now do you get it?
    if not can you tell me a particular part of the explanation that you don't get?
