Question

Suppose that the random variable xx, shown below, represents the number of speeding tickets a person received in a three-year period. P(x)P(x) represents the probability of a randomly selected person having received that number of speeding tickets during that period. Use the probability distribution table shown below to answer the following questions.

xx | P(x)P(x) |
---|---|

0 | 0.3891 |

1 | 0.281 |

2 | 0.1497 |

3 | 0.098 |

4 | 0.0471 |

5 | 0.0351 |

6+ | 0.0000 |

What is the probability that a randomly selected person has received four or more tickets in a three-year period?

P(x≥4)
