Question: Assume that airplanes land independently of one another on a particular runway. If there is an 8% chance that no airplanes land in an hour, what is the probability that six airplanes land in an hour?

A: 0.6188

B: 0.7351

C: 0.1515

D: 0.0288

We are given that: airplanes land independently of one another on a particular runway.

There is an 8% chance that no airplanes land in an hour.

So events are given on certain time period.

So number of outcomes happening in an hour follows Poisson distribution with parameter \lambda
