Between the hours of 2am and 3am, three cars per minute pass a toll booth. This is true for all 7 days of the week

1. Find the probability that 8 or more cars pass the toll booth for the 2 minute period from 2:01 am through 2:02 am on a given Monday.

2. Find the probability that 8 or more cars pass the toll booth for the 2 minute period from 2:01 am through 2:02 am on a given Monday, AND that 8 or more cars pass the toll booth

1)

Cars pass per minute = 3

Cars pass per 2 minute = 3 *2 = 6

Mean/Expected number of events of interest: λ = 6

 P(X=x) = e-λλx/x!
 X P(X) 0 0.0025 1 0.0149 2 0.0446 3 0.0892 4 0.1339 5 0.1606 6 0.1606 7 0.1377

P(x>=8) = 1 - [P(X=0) + P(X=1) +...........+P(X=7)]

= 1 - 0.7440

= 0.256

2)

Here question after AND seems to be missing the information. If not, then it is same as above.

Please revert back in case of any doubt.
