We have a binomial probabilty here

 

Exactly three

 

C(12,4) (.41)^3 (.59)^9  ≈ 29.55%

 

At least 4  =

 

1 - C(12,0)(.59)^12 - C(12,1)(.41)(.59)^11 - C(12,2)(.41)^2(.59)^10 - C(12,3)(.41)^3(.59)^9  ≈ 79.5%

 

Less than 8  =

 

C(12,0)(.59)^12 + C(12,1)(.41)(.59)^11 + C(12,2)(.41)^2(.59)^10 + C(12,3)(.41)^3(.59)^9 +

C(12,4)(.41)^4(.59)^8 + C(12,5)(.41)^5(.59)^7 + C(12,6)(.41)^6(.59)^6 + C(12,7)(.41)^7(.59)^5 ≈ 93.38%
