# Poisson Process

## Homework Statement

If you find a mushroom, what is the chance that at least one more will be within one yard from it ? What is the chance that there is exactly one mushroom within the distance one yard from the point you stay? The mushrooms grow in a forest randomly , with density 0.5 square yard

## The Attempt at a Solution

A = 0.5 * (1squared * pi) 0.5pi ,
0.5pi* e(-.5 pi)
