Consider a Poisson distribution with μ = 3.

  1. a. write the appropriate Poisson probability function.
  2. b. Compute f(2).
  3. c. Compute f(1).
  4. d. Compute P(x ≥ 2).

a.

To determine

Write the appropriate Poisson probability function.

Explanation of Solution

Calculation:

The Poisson distribution with parameter, μ=3 is given.

The Poisson probability function is,

f(x)=μxeμx!

Where, x is the number occurrences of the event in a given interval, μ is the mean occurrences of the event, and e is a constant that has value 2

b.

To determine

Find the value of f(2).

c.

To determine

Find the value of f(1).

d.

To determine

Find the value P(x2).
