4.   Geologists estimate the time since the most recent cooling of a mineral by counting the number of uranium fission tracks on the surface of the mineral. A certain mineral specimen is of such an age that there should be an average of 6 tracks per cm2 of surface area. Assume the number of tracks in an area follows a Poisson distribution. Let X represent the number of tracks counted in 1 cm2 of surface area. Find

a.  P(X = 7)

b.   P(X ≥ 3)

c.    P(2 <>< 7)=””>

d.  µX

e.   σX
