I'm not sure why this problem would be in the negative binomial distribution section. What do you mean by similar reasoning?

Well the problem was in the negative binomial distribution section so I was trying to apply that to the problem. I am able to do this without using $nb$ though. I am just curious.

So the formula I mentioned that was in my book could be used for this problem? I was thinking to use the formula but didn't know how to plug in the values.

Oops, It should be $-0.01$, I fixed that.

I found my mistake, the complement of "at most three forms are required" is "a least 4 forms are required" and that is $[Y=4]\cup [Y=5]$ which gives me the correct answer.
