scheduled time?
b. What is the likelihood that none of the selected flights arrived within 15 minutes of
the scheduled time?
c. What is the likelihood at least one of the selected flights did not arrive within 15 minutes

is .01, the probability a “medium” risk driver will have an accident is .03, and the probability
a “poor” driver will have an accident is .10. The company sells Mr. Brophy an insurance
