Expert's answer

If the variable X represents the number of non-assigned books read during the past six months, then:

P( X > 1) = P(2) + P(3) + P(4) + P(5) = 0.2 + 0.15 + 0.1 + 0.1 = 0.55

So, the right answer is:

C.0.55

P( X > 1) = P(2) + P(3) + P(4) + P(5) = 0.2 + 0.15 + 0.1 + 0.1 = 0.55

So, the right answer is:

C.0.55
