Group Clicker Question #26 (1pt.): Suppose a car insurance company can divide drivers into risky and safe drivers. Over the course of a year, a risky driver will have a accident with probability .4 and a safe driver with probability .2. If 30% of the population are risky drivers, what is the probability that a new policyholder will have an accident in the first year?
