Question: a baseball player is said to be having a hitting...
A baseball player is said to be having a hitting streak if he has gotten on base, by hitting the ball or walking, in a “large” number of consecutive times at bat. Suppose a batter has batted a large number of times during the season and that his batting average is 300; that is, he has hit 30% of his times at bat.
How many hits must he get for you to consider this batter to have had an unusually long streak? Justify your choice.
