    What type of distribution is this?

    Karen supplements her income by making a necklace that she sells online. Orders for the necklace occur randomly at a rate of one per every 8 days, on average. She begins each month by making enough necklaces to get her inventory up to 4 necklaces.

    X=number of orders that will come in during the month of April (30 days)

    a) distribution name
    b) parameter value
    c) P(X=2)

    Looks like Poisson dist. to me with \lambda = \frac{1}{8}
