# Solution for The Number of Complaints Which a Bank Manager Receives per Day is a Poisson Random Variable with Parameter M = 4. Find the Probability that the Manager Will Receive - HSC Commerce 12th Board Exam - Mathematics and Statistics

#### Question

The number of complaints which a bank manager receives per day is a Poisson random variable with parameter m = 4. Find the probability that the manager will receive -

(a) only two complaints on any given day.

(b) at most two complaints on any given day

[Use e-4 =0.0183]

#### Solution

P(X=k)=e^(-m) xx m^k/(k!)

(a) only two complaints on any given day.

k=2, m=4

P(X=2)=e^(-4) xx 4^2/2

=0.0183 xx 8

=0.1464

(b) at most two complaints on any given day

=P(x<=2)

=P(x=0)+P(x=1)+P(x=2)

=e^(-4) xx 4^0/0 + 0.732 + 0.1464

=0 + 0.732 + 0.1464

=0.2196
