# Data from 14 cities were combined for a 20-year period, and the total 280 city-years included a total of 168 homicides. After finding the mean number of homicides per city-year, find the probability that a randomly selected city-year has the following numbers of homicides, then compare the actual results to those expected by using the Poisson probabilities: Homicides each city-year a. 0 c. 2 b. 1 Actual results d. 3 e. 4 155 90 28 a. P(0) = (Round to four decimal places as needed.) b. P(1) =| (Round to four decimal places as needed.) c. P(2) =| (Round to four decimal places as needed.) d. P(3) = (Round to four decimal places as needed.) e. P(4) = (Round to four decimal places as needed.) The actual results consisted of 155 city-years with 0 homicides; 90 city-years with one homicide; 28 city-years with two homicides; 6 city-years with three homicides; 1 city-year with four homicides. Compare the actual results to those expected by using the Poisson probabilities. Does the Poisson distribution serve as a good tool for predicting the actual results? O Yes, the results from the Poisson distribution probabilities closely match the actual results. No, the results from the Poisson distribution probabilities do not match the actual results.
