Answer the following questions: 1. What probability distribution does this follow? 2. What is the probability that 10 hurricanes reach landfall in the strkie area? 3. What is the probability at least one of 10 hurricanes reaches land outside the strike area?Answer by stanbon(57337)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Suppose the National Hurricane Center forecasts that hurricanes will hit the strike area with a .95 probablity. Answer the following questions: 1. What probability distribution does this follow? Ans: binomial with n = 10 and P(hit) = 0.95 ; P(hit elsewhere) = 0.05 ------ 2. What is the probability that 10 hurricanes reach landfall in the strkie area? Ans: 0.95^10 = 0.5987 ----------------- 3. What is the probability at least one of 10 hurricanes reaches land outside the strike area? Ans: 0.05^10 = 9.76x10^-14 ==================================== Cheers, Stan H.
