Explain why the relative frequency of distribution for the sample does not provide a correct estimate of the distribution of households trip frequency that one would have obtained from a random sample of households. What is the probability that a randomly selected household in the study area makes no trip at all?

In a roadside interview survey, a random sample of all vehicles crossing each of a set of intersections is taken. Assume that every trip made in the area of interest over the duration of the study is equally likely to be sampled by this method. One question asked in survey concerns the total number of home-based round trips made
