Suppose that 10^6 people arrive at a service station at times that are independent random variables, each of which is uniformly distributed over (0,10^6). Let N denote the number that arrive in the first hour. Find an approximation for

Then we have a binomial distribution.
You can approximate it by a Poisson distribution (see here : Binomial distribution - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia )
