# Suppose that n raisins have been carefully mixed with a batch of dough If we bake k (k > 4) raisin buns of equal size from this mixture what is the probability that two out of four randomly selected

Suppose that n raisins have been carefully mixed with a batch of dough. If we bake k (k > 4) raisin buns of equal size from this mixture, what is the probability that two out of four randomly selected buns contain no raisins? Hint: Note that, by Example 5.13, the number of raisins in a given bun is approximately Poisson with parameter n/k.

Example 5.13

Suppose that n raisins are thoroughly mixed in dough. If we bake k raisin cookies of equal sizes from this mixture, what is the probability that a given cookie contains at least one raisin?
