Unformatted text preview: binomial is discrete. For Questions 4 and 5, consider Problem 4–86. The number of stork sightings on a route in South Carolina follows a Poisson process with a mean of 1.3 per year. Let X denote the time until a stork sighting. 4. (2 pt) Determine the value of E( X ). 5. (2 pt) Suppose that a bird watching has been watching for 2 years, with no sighting. Determine the conditional expected value until the next sighting. That is, determine the value of E( X  X > 2). ______________________________________________________________________ Write on the back any concerns about the weekly quizzes or the course in general.
