Renegade343 Posted September 11, 2014 Share Posted September 11, 2014 So I was blowing up Kubrow Dens on Earth to obtain Kubrow Eggs, and I was getting numb in my mind. So, I started to time myself, and calculate the average of Kubrow Dens destroyed in five minutes (solo option). I took five trials, and obtained the values: 5 3 6 5 4 And so, the mean is: (5+3+6+5+4)/5 = 4.6 And then, since I was thinking about multiples of 25 while I was playing, I then asked myself this question: I destroy Kubrow Dens at an average rate of 4.6 per five minutes, independent of each interval. What is the probability I can destroy 25 Kubrow Dens? And so, since I have identified this question as requiring Poisson distribution to solve (events are independent of each other, and of each interval, and I known the average rate), I attempted the question: X ~ Po(4.6) P(X = r) = ([e^-m]*[m^r])/r! (where m = average rate) P(X = 25) = ([e^-4.6]*[4.6^25])/25! = 2.40 * 10^-11 Quite a low chance, no? And Vay Hek really likes his Poissons. And I am not sorry. At all.
