Problem 33BSC

 

Using Probability to Identify Unlikely Events. In Exercises, consider an event to be “unlikely” if its probability is less than or equal to 0.05. (This is equivalent to the same criterion commonly used in inferential statistics, but the value of 0.05 is not absolutely rigid, and other values such as 0.01 are sometimes used instead.)

Texting While Driving In a New York Times/CBS News poll, respondents were asked if it should be legal or illegal to send a text message while driving. Eight said that it should be legal and 804 said that it should be illegal. What is the probability of randomly selecting someone who believes it should be legal to text while driving? Is it unlikely to randomly select someone with that belief?
