Homework Help: statistics

Posted by Jen on Sunday, December 11, 2011 at 4:26pm.

Records show that deaths occur at the rate of 0.1 per day among patients residing in a large nursing home. If someone dies today, what are the chances that a week or more will elapse before another death occurs?

The answer is 0.50 and the problem is in the Poisson section but I don't know how to get this answer.
