**Damon**, Thursday, January 24, 2008 at 4:30pmProbability of zero = 1.1^0 e^-1.1 / 0!

= (1/1 )e^-1.1 = .332

of 1 = 1.1^1 (.332)/1! = .365

of 2 = 1.1^2 (.332)/2! = .201

The sum of the probabilities of zero, 1 and 2 is

.898

SO, the probability of more than two is

1 - .898 = .102

ten percent. That is scary.
