Hi
I need help setting this up.
Grasshoppers are distributed at random in a large field according to a Poisson distribution with parameter alpha = 2 per square yard. How large should the radius R of a circular sampling region be taken so that the probability of finding at least one in the region equals .99?
I think the problem I'm having is with the square yard and radius. I know that to calculate pr(x =>1) = 1 - pr(x = 0).
