Step 1 of 3:

The average number of motor vehicle thefts occur each minute in the United States is 3.1.

The distribution of thefts per minute can be approximated by the Poisson distribution.

  1. We have to find the probability that exactly four thefts occur in a minute.
  2. We have to find the probability there are no thefts occur in a minute.
