An internal study by the Technology Services department at Lahey Electronics revealed

company employees receive an average of two emails per hour. Assume the arrival of

between 4 P.M. and 5 P.M. yesterday?

b. What is the probability she received 5 or more email during the same period?

c. What is the probability she did not receive any email during the period?
