9. An insurance company finds that 8% of the people who are insured with the
company against a certain risk claims within a year.
a) Calculate the probability that at least one out of two randomly selected
people who are insured against the risk makes a claim within a year
b) Calculate the probability that at least 3 out of 60 randomly selected people
who are insured against the risk make claims within a year. Comment on the
validity of the probability model you use.
c) Using an approximate probability distribution, estimate the probability that
at least 12 out of 100 randomly selected people who are against the risk
make claims within a year. Justify your use of this approximation.
