Hi,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I have a situation where there are N random events. These events can be from either one of two sources, one with a binomial distribution, the other with a Poisson distribution. The events do not provide any evidence of their origin, either distribution could be responsible for creating the event.

The question is, how do I calculate the probability that there will be N events given the parameters for both distributions?
