    Thanks answer is 1 over 114. 5 out of 20, times 4 out of 19, times 3 out of 18, simplified so 60 divided by 6840. :)

The chance of the first pick having gotten an A is 5 out of 20. The chance of the second pick having gotten an A, assuming the first pick also got an A, is 4 out of 19. The chance of the third pick having gotten an A, assuming the first two also got As, is 3 out of 18. Multiply the three together to get the chances of all three picks having gotten As.

First one, chance is 5/7

Second one, 4/6

So odds of 2 RH in succession is 5/7 x 4/6 = 20/42 or 10/21

Programming in TI-84 Plus? I'm a High School student?

There is nothing wrong with your English. The problem with your request is that the program you are talking about is NO program at all, but a collection of formulas that may serve as a cheat sheet. If your teacher wanted you to make this program he would have shown you the steps to key in. Besides it would be a lot more efficient to just write these formulas on the board. Sorry, there will be no help from me.
Your formulas 2 and 3 are useless, and formulas 7 and for the real solutions of a quadratic equation are wrong. The right member should be multiplied by 1/a.
How about trying to learn your formulas by heart? It is good for your memory and you will avoid being caught cheating.

Will this toaster operate on a 20 amp curcuit

look on the back of the unit and see how many watts it draws. use the formula amps = watts divided by volts. to determine how many amps the unit would draw, chance are though, that a 20 amp circuit will be fine, but it does depend on how many and what type ffo other devices are on that same circuit.
