In 2006, there were about 11 million commercial flights in the United States. If
one is selected at random, what is the probability that it involved a fatal accident?
3. Is a binomial distribution a good model for determining the probability of various
numbers of fatal accidents during a year?
Explain your reasoning and include a
discussion of the four criteria for a binomial experiment. Make sure you clearly
think through each criterion.
4. Suppose that the probability of a fatal accident in a given year is 0.0000004.
Construct a binomial distribution for n = 11,000,000 and
p = 0.0000004 (from above) as well as p = 0.0000008 with x = 0 to 12.
