If the probability that a baby born in a certain hospital will speak in the next day is 1/4, what is the probability that at least 2 babies out of a cluster of 5 babies will speak tomorrow?

Thanks!!!!

The probability that 2 babies will speak tomorrow is C(5,2) · (1/4)2 · (3/4)3

3                                                C(5,3) · (1/4)3 · (3/4)2

4                                                C(5,4) · (1/4)4 · (3/4)1

5                                                C(5,5) · (1/4)5 · (3/4)0

Find the answer to each of the above and add them together.
