.400 in Baseball
From Nieve Nielson:
I have several questions to ask about the probability of getting a .400 in baseball:
What is the probability of a baseball player hitting a .400 in one game, considering that the hitter is up to bat four times?
What is the probability of a baseball player hitting a .400 in a season, considering that there are 100 games in a season? With the first two questions in mind:
Considering that baseball has been around for about 100 years, about how many people should hit .400 inthat time?
