Last updated: 12/12/2023

Find the indicated probabilities using the geometric distribution the Poisson distribution or the binomial distribution Then determine if the events are unusual If convenient use the appropriate probability table or technology to find the probabilities The mean number of oil tankers at a port city is 8 per day The port has facilities to handle up to 11 oil tankers in a day Find the probability that on a given day a eight oil tankers will arrive b at most three oil tankers will arrive and c too many oil tankers will arrive a P eight oil tankers will arrive Round to four decimal places as needed b P at most three oil tankers will arive Round to four decimal places as needed c P too many oil tankers will arrive Round to four decimal places as needed A The event in part a is unusual B The event in part b is unusual C The event in part c is unusual D None of the events are unusual
