On the planet Tatooine, there is an annual podrace called the Boonta Eve Classic. The course is very dangerous (with the Sand People snipers, the dangerous competitors, and the “Devil’s Doorknob”, a small hole at the end of a canyon). Typically the probability of having a crash is 1/4. This year, there are 6 racers.

a.) What is the probability that all 6 crash, if crashes are independent of one another?

b.) If there are 8 racers next year, but there is a 1/3 probability of having a crash due to bad weather conditions, what is the probability that all 8 crash?

c.) Which race will be more likely to have all of its competitors crash?

A) 24%

B) 24 %

C) They are the same percentage. So that means they would have an equal amount of having all of their competitors crash.
