The answer is suppose to be .8902, but I got 0.895. I took 0.23 to the 6th power and subtracted it from 1. What am I doing wrong?

**Reiny**, Tuesday, March 30, 2010 at 7:24pmactually their answer is wrong as well

you want the prob of losing 6 times in a row, so

if prob of winning is .023 then the prob of losing in a game is .977

so prob of losing 6 consecutive times

= (.977)^6 = .8696958
