Suppose $p$ is the number of cars per minute passing through a certain road junction between $5$ PM and $6$ PM, and $p$ has a Poisson distribution with mean $3$. What is the probability of observing fewer than $3$ cars during any given minute in this interval?
Let X be a random variable which indicates number of cars per minute.
Given E(X) (i.e) expected number of cars per minute (i.e) average number of cars per minute (i.e) mean number of cars per minute = 3
probability of number of cars being 0 or 1 or 2 per minute
= P(X = 0) + P(X = 1) + P(X = 2)
= [e-3 (3)0 / 0!] + [e-3 (3)1 / 1!] + [e-3 (3)2 / 2!]
= 17 / 2e3
