Which of the following statements is true?

Consider the binomial probability formula

$P\left(x\right)=\nCr{n}{x}p^x\left(1-p\right)^{n-x}$P(x)=nCxpx(1p)nx,

where $P\left(x\right)$P(x) is the probability of obtaining $x$x successes in $n$n independent trials.

A particular nationwide numeracy test has a failure rate of $30%$30%.

If you randomly selected $100$100 students from across the country to do the test, how many would you expect to pass?
