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

I have this one problem but have no idea how to get started.

Avg. number of accidents is .4 accidents / day (Poisson Process)

What is the probability that the time from now to the next accident will be more than 3 days?

What is the probability that the the time from now to the 3rd accident will be more than 5 days?

Any information / formulas would be appreciated.
