Suppose a neighborhood district in a large city suffers repeated property crimes, not always perpetrated by the same criminals. The police are investigating six property crime cases in this district.

(a) What is the probability that none of the crimes will ever be solved?

(b) What is the probability that at least one crime will be solved?

(c) What is the expected number of crimes that will be solved? What is the standard deviation?

(d) How many property crimes n must the police investigate before they can be at least 90% sure of solving one or more cases?
