So I know that lambda is the mean so each cookie should have 4 chips on it which seems to correspond with the factg that 36/9 = 4 also.
Does the mean change when you have more cookies?
How would you set this problem up. I assume it will have something to do with:
Pr = e^(neg lambda) * (lambda^y)/(y!)
Thanks in advance.
