Let X have a Poisson distribution with a variance of 4. Find P(X=2)

Customers arrive at a travel agency at a mean rate of 11 per hour. Assuming that the number of arrivals per hour has a Poisson distribution, give the probability that more than 10 customers arrive in a given hour.

If X has a Poisson distribution such that 3P(X=1) = P(X=2), find P(X=4).
