Question

A certain snack vending machine dispenses the incorrect item, on average, 4.2 times every day. Assume that the number of incorrect items dispensed on any given day, X, is a Poisson random variable.

 

 

What is the probability that the machine will dispense exactly 9 incorrect items tomorrow? ANSWER:  (Use only the appropriate formula and/or statistical table in your textbook to answer this question. Report your answer as to 4 decimal places, using conventional rounding rules)

 

 

What is the standard deviation of this probability distribution? ANSWER:  (Use only the appropriate formula and/or statistical table in your textbook to answer this question. Report your answer as to 4 decimal places, using conventional rounding rules)
