A court with 9 judges is going to decide your case.
You are sure that 3 of the 9 judges are going to rule in your favor (based on prior rulings in similar cases).
You are also sure that 2 of the 9 judges are going to rule against you.
Assume that the other 4 judges are as likely to rule for you as against you--in effect that each of them will flip a coin.
What is the probability that 5 or more judges will rule for you?
