According to a study, a female driver in the United States will average 615 accidents per 100 million miles. Regard an n-mile trip as a sequence of n Bernoulli trials with "success" corresponding to having an accident during a particular mile. What is the probability that a female driver will have an accident in a 1-mile trip? (Round your answer to eight decimal places.)
