# In the production of chocolate chip​ cookies one can consider each cookie to be the specified interval unit required for a Poisson​ distribution and one can consider the variable x to be the number

In the production of chocolate chip​ cookies, one can consider each cookie to be the specified interval unit required for a Poisson​ distribution, and one can consider the variable x to be the number of chocolate chips in a cookie. The data set below includes the numbers of chocolate chips in 34 different chocolate chip cookies. The Poisson distribution requires a value for µ, so use 30.0, which is the mean number of chocolate chips in the 34 cookies. Assume that the Poisson distribution applies. Complete parts a and b below.

a. Find the probability that a cookie will have 26 chocolate​ chips, then find the expected number of cookies with 26 chocolate chips among 34 different​ cookies, then compare the result to the actual number of cookies with 26 chocolate chips.

The probability that a cookie will have 26 chips​ is,
