## Homework Statement

12 non-distinguishable attacks from President Snow land in Panem’s 12 districts in a particular week. Assume the attacks are located randomly, with each configuration of attacks equally likely. What is the probability that some district had more than 1 attack?

## Homework Equations

$$P = \binom{n}{k}p^{k}*(1-p)^{n-k}$$ or, possibly, $$P=\frac{λ^{k}}{k!}*e^{-λ}$$

## The Attempt at a Solution

$$1-\sum_{k=0}^{1}\binom{12}{k}(\frac{1}{12})^{k}(\frac{11}{12})^{12-k}≈0.65$$

Should I have used a poisson distribution instead?
