Problem 5.67 Tennis RacquetsProfessional tennis players bring multiple racquets to each match. They know that high string tension, the force with which they hit the ball and occasional “racquet abuse” are all reasons why racquets break during a match. Brian Lob’s coach tells him that he has a 15% chance of breaking a racquet in any given match. How many matches on average can Brian expect to play until he breaks the racquet and needs to use a backup? Use simulation methods to answer the question.
