Using a Poisson distribution with a probability of success of 0.4, calculate the Probability of having exactly 0 successes in 10 tries. Start with the Poisson Distribution formula below:

Excel or Google Sheets formula:=POISSON(0,4,FALSE)

P(0; 4) = 0.0183

What is the Answer?

P(0; 4) = 0.0183

How does the Poisson Distribution Calculator work?

Free Poisson Distribution Calculator - Calculates the probability of 3 separate events that follow a poisson distribution. It calculates the probability of exactly k successes P(x = k) No more than k successes P (x <= k) Greater than k successes P(x >= k) Each scenario also calculates the mean, variance, standard deviation, skewness, and kurtosis.
Calculates moment number t using the moment generating function This calculator has 4 inputs.

What 2 formulas are used for the Poisson Distribution Calculator?

What 9 concepts are covered in the Poisson Distribution Calculator?

distribution

value range for a variable

event

a set of outcomes of an experiment to which a probability is assigned.

factorial

The product of an integer and all the integers below it

mean

A statistical measurement also known as the average

moment

a function are quantitative measures related to the shape of the functions graph

poisson distribution

a discrete probability distribution that is used to show how many times an event is likely to occur over a specified period.

probability

the likelihood of an event happening. This value is always between 0 and 1. P(Event Happening) = Number of Ways the Even Can Happen / Total Number of Outcomes

standard deviation

a measure of the amount of variation or dispersion of a set of values. The square root of variance

variance

How far a set of random numbers are spead out from the mean
