(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

The number of hours that it takes to process a certain type of job is a random variable with mean and standard deviation 2. AAssuming that proccessing times are independent, approximate the probability that atleast 50 jobs can be sequentially processed within 240 hours.

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

How should I approach this question? Can we use Poisson process for this equation? Please justify this point. Thank you again.
