349: Hole-in-One Insurance
If the average golfer is able to get a hole-in-one once in approximately 3000 rounds of golf (18 holes apiece), then what is the probability of any one of 100 average golfers getting a hole-in-one on the 5th hole during the weekend golf tournament?
What's the best way to find this out if you're the insurance company that will write this policy?
