Poisson approximation binomial proabability

Please use words to describe the solution, not just symbols. (basically, explain what is going on in addition to an answer) Use a math symbol editor where appropriate.

Problem 1:

Write a program to compute binomial probabilities and compare the results with the Poisson approximation for the following cases:

a) P(X = 2) when n = 7, p = 0.1

b) P(X = 8) when n = 10, p = 0.95

c) P(X = 0) when n = 11, p = 0.1

d) P(X = 4) when n = 9, p = 0.2

Solution Summary

This solution gives the step by step method for Poisson approximation binomial probability.
