Given a worn machine that creates defects at the average rate of 5 units per hour, what 's the probability of no defects occurring in any specific hour? What's the probability of 8 or more defects in any hour?

Solution Preview

Here it is given that average rate is 5 units per hour.

So that λ= np = 5,

Let X be the number of defects per hour.
Poisson formula is P(X = x) = (see attached)
