I'm under the assumption that the solutions will be available for some time? If they're going to come off after a certain point, I'd like to know.

Unless directed otherwise by Sam, we will be leaving them on the site for quite some time.

.Godspeed.

Professor Broverman, I just noticed that in your solution to Question 11, you calculate the lambda of the Poisson Distribution as 1.2; yet when you find P[N>1], you use lambda=1.3. The answer you provide is .373; however, using lambda=1.2, the answer is .337. Both answer choices would render (E) as the correct letter choice, but I believe the answer should be .337.

Thank you for any clarification.

Thanks for pointing that out.

I agree with you that 1.2 and .337 are correct.
