Problem 1BSC

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.

Step-by-Step Solution:

Solution 1BSC Step 1 By assuming that we need to find the probability that a randomly selected region had exactly two hits. We need to identify the values of , x and e. Here, we are dealing with Poisson distribution for a total of 535 bombs hit the combined area of 576 regions. Now, the Mean number of bombs with respect to regions is Total number of bombs535 = Total number of region576= 0.929 Here, we need to find the probability that a randomly selected region had exactly two hits, i.e., x = 2. And e = 2.71828 is the constant value for finding the probability that a randomly selected region had exactly two hits.
