Mark noticed that the probability that a certain player hits a home run in a single game is 0.165. Mark is interested in the variability of the number of home runs if this player plays 150 games.

If Mark uses the normal approximation of the binomial distribution to model the number of home runs, what is the variance for a total of 150 games? Answer choices are rounded to the hundredths place.
