Suppose 20% of babies born are born early, 50% are born on time, and 30% are born late. A nurse uses a random-number table to find the experimental probability that of 5 births, at least 1 baby will be born early. The digits 0 and 1 represent babies born early. The digits 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6 represent babies born on time. The digits 7, 8, and 9 represent babies born late.
