Expert Answer:

This problem is based on Binomial Distribution.
Let x = getting success
According to given condition, an experiment succeeds thrice as often it fails.
Thus, we have
 
p equals 3 over 4 comma space q equals 1 fourth space a n d space n space equals space 5

Thus, P(at least 3 successes) = P(X = 3) + P(X = 4) + P(X = 5)
