Harvey the clumsy waiter is in trouble at work because he has been breaking too many dishes. Suppose that the number of dishes he breaks follows a Poisson distribution with a rate of 0.11 per hour. Harvey works an 8-hour shift today, and his boss has warned him that if he breaks any dishes during the shift, he will be red. What is the probability that Harvey will be red today?
Wouldn't lambda be lambda*t = 0.11 x 8 = 0.88? Or did I get that twisted?
