In a​ 22-year period, a particular location was hit by 35 major hurricanes. Assume that major hurricanes are independent of each other and that the mean number of hurricanes per year has not changed.

​a) What's the probability of no hurricanes next​ year?

(Round to four decimal places as​ needed.)

​b) What's the probability that during the next​ year, there is exactly one​ hurricane?

(Round to four decimal places as​ needed.)

​c) What's the probability that during the next​ year, there is more than one​ hurricane?

(Round to four decimal places as​ needed.)

The mean of the Poisson distribution is: 0.628571   a) The probability of no hurricanes next... View the full answer
