a man takes a step forward with probability .04 and backwards with a probability .06 . find the probability that at the end of 11 steps he is 1 step away from the initial point .

Random Walk Problem:

p = 0.4

q = 0.6

n = 11

x = 1

np = (n+x)/2 = 6

nq = (n-x)/2 = 5

P(np)=ncr( n, np )*p^np*q^(n-np)

[input]ncr( 11, 6 ) * 0.4^6*0.6^(11-6)[/input]
