In western Kansas, the summer

timer Asked: Nov 3rd, 2015

Question description

In western Kansas, the summer density of hailstorms is estimated at about 1.7 storms per 5 square miles. In most cases, a hailstorm damages only a relatively small area in a square mile. A crop insurance company has insured a tract of 10 square miles of Kansas wheat land against hail damage. Let r be a random variable that represents the number of hailstorms this summer in the 10-square-mile tract.

What is λ for the 10-square-mile tract of land? Round λ to the nearest tenth so that you can use Table 4 of Appendix II for Poisson probabilities.
