Question

When Earth traveled through the storm of meteorites trailing the comet Tempel-Tuttle on November 17, 1998, the storm was 1,000 times as intense as the average meteor storm. Before the comet arrived, telecommunication companies worried about the potential damage that might be inflicted on the approximately 650 satellites in orbit. It was estimated that each satellite had a 1% chance of being hit, causing damage to the satellite’s electronic system. One company had five satellites in orbit at the time. Determine the probability distribution of the number of the company’s satellites that would be damaged.
