Previous: Poisson random variable 11/2
Situations occur where an event happens
at random over a period of time:
- A tap drips a drop about every 5 minutes.
- Police office receives emergency calls.
- Typos on a page
We have to take a period of time where the rate is about unchanged.
(not like the police calls in early morning/late afternoon).
