Unformatted text preview: ( Î± , Î¸ = 1 / Î» ) distribution, where Î± is an integer, then P ( X > t ) = P ( Y t â‰¤ Î± â€“ 1 ) , P ( X â‰¤ t ) = P ( Y t â‰¥ Î± ) , where Y t has a Poisson ( Î» t ) distribution. 2. Traffic accidents at a particular intersection follow Poisson distribution with an average rate of 1.4 per week. a) What is the probability that the next accident will not occur for three days? b) What is the probability that the next accident will occur during the third day? (That is, the time until the next accident is more than two days, but less than three days.) c) What is the probability that the second accident will occur before the end of the third day? d) What is the probability that the third accident will occur during the fourth day?...
