Sarah took a Statistics midterm which consisted of 13 multiple choice questions. Each question had 6 possible response options. Sarah answered 8 of the 13 questions correctly. Assume that Sarah had the same probability of getting each question correct.
What is the most likely value of p (where p is defined as the probability that Sarah get a given question correct)? You may round the possible values of p to the nearest hundredths place.
With 6 choices for each questions, the probability of getting and question correct = 1/6. Calculate the decimal.
