Suppose only 40% of all drivers in a certain state regularly wear a seatbelt. A random sample of 500 drivers is selected. What is the approximate probability that between 180 and 230(inclusive) of the drivers in the sample regularly wear a seatbelt? (20) 5. A coin that when flipped comes up heads with probability p. Let X be the number of flips required until either heads or tails has occurred twice. Find the probability mass function of X. Find the expectation of X. (20)...
