Step 1

As per the question, X follows poisson distribution with mean 0.23

Probability density function of poisson distribution is given by

Step 2

a) Probability that the transmission has exactly one missing/corrupted packet of data is given by

Step 3

b) Probability that the transmission has atleast 3 ... help_outlineImage TranscriptioncloseP(X < 3) 1 - (P(X = 0) P(X 1) P(X 2)) P(X 3) 1 _ -0.23 x 0.232 -0.23 x 0.23 e-0.23 x 0.231 е е 11 0! 1! 2! 1 - (0.7945 0.1827 0.0210) = 0.001708 fullscreen
