In the 1980s, an average of 121.95 workers died on the job each week. Give estimates of the following quantities:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

a.) the proportion of weeks having 130 deaths or more;

b.) the proportion of weeks having 100 deaths or less.

Explain your reasoning.

Procedure

I'm not sure, how to start. This might not be a Poisson or Binomial R.V.

Could someone help?
