Ok the stat problem is ... a mail order business has 9 phone lines and x is the number of line in use at a specified time. pmf of X is given:

x 1 2 3 4 5 6 7

P(x) .1 .15 .2 .25 .2 .06 .04

Calculate the probability of certain events

I didn't have any problem with most events but: (e) between two and four lines, inclusive, are not in use: so would it be:

p(0) + p(5)+ p(6) = .1 +.06 + .04 = .2 ?

The answer in the back of the book is .65

What did I do wrong in here?

Thanks for yoru time and help!
