Poisson distribution

  1. Oct 28, 2006 #1
    Hi, in a Poisson Distribution test, what happens when the amount of time is doubled?

    For example, in 1 month, lamda=np and I can calculate the probability of x events happening in that 1month.

    However, if the question is changed to 6 months, what will i have to do? Thanks.

    Just multiply lambda by 6 :smile:
