Poisson probability 1) Large # of trials; n>100 Small probability of success; np<10 2) An observed probability of success over a given time period; Num of fish/hour λ = Mean P(r) = number of success over a given time period (e )∗(λ) r r = # of successes over same time period r! NOTE: λ and r have same time period Ex: Police officer observed that on average, he stops 0.7 people per hour. λ = 0.7ppl/1hr What are the probability in a 8hr shift? λ = (0.7ppl/1hr)(8hrs/8hrs) = 5.6ppl/8hr - 5.6 r
