Notation In analyzing hits by V-l buzz bombs in World War II, South London was partitioned into 576 regions, each with an area of 0.25 km2. A total of 535 bombs hit the combined area of 576 regions. Assume that we want to find the probability that a randomly selected region had exactly two hits. In applying Formula 5-9, identify the values of µ, x, and e. Also, briefly describe what each of those symbols represents.

Answer:

Step 1 of 1</p>

A total of 535 bombs hit the combined area of 576 regions.

The poisson distribution applies because we are dealing with the occurrences of an event (bombs) over some interval (a region).

The Mean number of bombs per region is

0.9288

The probability that a randomly selected region had exactly two hits, x = 2, is given as

P(X) =

P(X...
