Unformatted text preview: 6% 1. (20 pts.) For the current seasonl, Melanie Vedvei of the Lady Hardrockers has made 87
of 120 her ﬂee throw attempts. In other words, the proportion of times she’s made a ﬂee
throw shot is 0.725. In the problems which follow assume she independently makes ﬂee
throws with chance 0.725. a. Compute the chance that she makes all 10 of her next 10 ﬂee throws (give me a
numeric answer). ' (725)” 9 .040 b. Write, but don ’t evaluate, an expression for the chance that she makes at least 8 of her
