# Notation In analyzing hits by V-1 buzz bombs in World War II, South London was partitioned into 576 regions, each with an area of 0.25 km2 . A total of 535 bombs hit the combined area of 576 regions. Assume that we want to find the probability that a randomly selected region had exactly two hits. In applying Formula 5-9, identify the values of μ, x, and e. Also, briefly describe what each of those symbols represents.

Notation In analyzing hits by V-1 buzz bombs in World War II, South London was partitioned into 576 regions, each with an area of 0.25 km2 . A total of 535 bombs hit the combined area of 576 regions. Assume that we want to find the probability that a randomly selected region had exactly two hits. In applying Formula 5-9, identify the values of μ, x, and e. Also, briefly describe what each of those symbols represents.

Step 1

Value of x:

The random variable x is the number of occurrences of the event in an interval. Here, the number occurrences represent the number of bomb hits in a randomly selected region. Also, the probability of exactly two bomb hits per region has to be found. Hence, the random variable takes the value 2.
