Question: Over the past 50 years one half of all cities that

Over the past 50 years, one-half of all cities that apply have received mass transportation grants from the federal government. In the last round of grants, eight southern cities applied but none received a grant. Assume that all cities were equally qualified to receive the grants. What is the probability that no southern city receives a grant? The Southern Governors’ Association is considering bringing a lawsuit against the federal government for discrimination in the awarding of the transportation grants. Do you think that the Southern Governors’ Association would have a strong case or a weak case? How would you advise the association to proceed?
