Question

Tornadoes During a recent 64-year period, New Mexico had a total of 153 tornadoes that measured 1 or greater on the Fujita scale. Let the random variable x represent the number of such tornadoes to hit New Mexico in one year, and assume that it has a Poisson distribution. What is the mean number of such New Mexico tornadoes in one year? What is the standard deviation? What is the variance?
