In 2008, the Detroit Lions set an NFL record by losing all 16 regular-season games. Suppose that the Lions actually had a 10% chance of winning an individual game in the 2008 season and that each game was independent. Let X represent the number of wins out of 16 regular-season games.
Round all answers to three decimal places unless otherwise specified.
