Please type your __subject__ in the **School Subject** box. Any other words, __including obscure abbreviations__, are likely to delay responses from a teacher who knows that subject well.

How did you get 0.3748 for part 1? The correct answer is 1 - (0.8)^10

One minus the probability that none of the ten have roadside coverage

The expecation value is the single-policy probabiity x (number of policies). That product is 2.
