Default Stuck on Problem 1.7

On part (a), I tried a few different things. Most recently, 1 - binomcdf(1 to 10 | N, mu) ^ (number of coins), but this doesn't seem to be correct.

In the case where mu is 0.05 and we try with one coin, the probability should be 1 - 0.05**10. I can't figure out how to generalize that to multiple coins.
