It is often used as a model for the number of events (such as the number of telephone calls at a business, number of customers in waiting lines, number of defects in a given surface area, airplane arrivals, or the number of accidents at an intersection) in a specific time period. It is also useful in ecological studies, e.g., to model the number of prairie dogs found in a square mile of prairie. The major difference between Poisson and Binomial distributions is that the Poisson does not have a fi ed number of trials. Instead, it uses the fi ed interval of time or space in which the number of successes is recorded. Parameters: The mean is λ. The variance is λ.

is the parameter which indicates the average number of events in the given time interval. Ex.1. On an average Friday, a waitress gets no tip from 5 customers. Find the pro a i!ity that she wi!! get no tip from " customers this Friday. The waitress averages 5 customers that leave no tip on Fridays: λ = 5. Random Variable : The number of customers that leave her no tip this Friday. We are interested in !" = #$. Ex. # $uring a typica! foot a!! game, a coach can expect %.# in&uries.
