Metal plates are inspected regularly for flaws and average 2 flaws per square yard. Assume a Poisson process is applicable and calculate the probability of getting
(a) no flaws in 4 square yards of material,
(b) at most 5 flaws in 4 square yards of material.
m = 8; P(x) = (e^-m * m^x) / x!
(a) P(0) = (e^-8 * 8^0 / ...
This solution provides all the steps for calculating the given probability problems involving Poisson distribution.
