Question

Assume that the Poisson distribution applies and that the mean number of hurricanes in a certain area is 5.85.8 per year.

a. Find the probability that, in a year, there will be 44 hurricanes.

b. In a 5555-year period, how many years are expected to have 44 hurricanes?

c. How does the result from part (b) compare to a recent period of 5555 years in which 77 years had 44 hurricanes? Does the Poisson distribution work well here?

Assume that the Poisson distribution applies and that the mean
number of hurricanes in a certain area is 5.6 per year.
a. Find the probability that, in a year, there will be 3
hurricanes.
b. In a 35-year period, how many years are expected to have 3
hurricanes?
c. How does the result from part (b) compare to a recent period
of 35 years in which 3 years had 3 hurricanes? Does the Poisson
distribution work well here?

Assume that the Poisson distribution applies and that the mean
number of aircraft accidents is 10 per month. Find P(0), the
probability that in a month, there will be no aircraft accidents.
Is it unlikely to have a month with no aircraft accidents?

Struggling with Poisson Distribution. Please could you explain
the calculation?
Assume that a number of network errors experienced in a day in a
local area network are distributed as a Poisson random variable.
The mean number of network errors experienced in a day is 1.6.
1) Work out the probability that in any given day more than two
network errors will occur
2) Work out the probability that in any given day two or more
network errors will occur
3)...

An offshore structure with a design life of 20 years is planned
for a site where extreme wave events may occur with a return period
of 100 years (i.e. the 100-year wave). The structure is designed to
have a 0.99 probability of not suffering damage within its design
life. Damage effects between wave events are statistically
independent
(a) You found in HW 4 that the yearly probability of exceedance
of the design wave height is p = 1/100 = 0.01....

The number of facets in the eye of the fruit fly Drosophila
melanogaster is of interest in genetics to model changes across
many generations (ie genetic selection). The distribution of the
number of facets in the eye in a certain Drosphila population has
been welldocumented over a long period of time. The distribution is
moderately positively skewed with a mean of 68 and a standard
deviation of 22.
a) Estimate the probability of an individual fruit fly having 80
or...
