    Please help with the following probability problem.

    A statistical experiment involves flipping a coin that is much thicker than a regular coin of the same diameter. When flipped, the probability for the thick coin to come to rest on its edge is 4 percent; otherwise it is a "fair coin" in the sense that we can get heads or tails with equal probabilities.

    1. Refer to exhibit 1.5 above. What is the total number of possible outcomes comprising the sample space for the statistical experiment?

    2. Refer to exhibit 1.5 above. What is the probability of getting heads when conducting the statistical experiment?

    3. Given that Z is a standard normal random variable, what is the value of Z if the area to the left is Z is 0.9382?
