#### Solution

Verified#### Step 1

1 of 5DEFINITIONS

Formula $\textbf{Poisson probability}$:

$P(X=k)=\dfrac{\mu^k e^{-\mu}}{k!}$

$\textbf{Complement rule}$:

$P(\sim A)=P(\text{not }A)=1-P(A)$

$\textbf{Addition rule}$ for disjoint or mutually exclusive events:

$P(A\cup B)=P(A\text{ or }B)=P(A)+P(B)$
