Question:

In your own words, what is the difference between a burglary and a robbery? Provide examples of each.

Taylor R.
Answer:

A burglary is considered a crime against property and consists of thefts that occur with no witnesses present including no violence or threat of violence. An example of a burglary is entering a person's home while they are not present and taking their personal or valuable possessions. A robbery can be considered a crime against a person, by attempted theft or theft that takes place with witnesses present. These thefts occur by force or threat of force. Robberies usually occur for monetary gains. An example of a robbery would be individuals who barge into a gas station store and demands money from the cashier while holding a gun.

Question:

A medical examiner's office determined that on average it receives 3 deceased persons per week. Find the probability that the medical examiner's office receives exactly 4 deceased persons during a random week.

Taylor R.
Answer:

P(x=4) Using the poisson distribution formula: P(X=x) = e^-λ* (λ^x/x!) We substitute in x (probability) =4 and λ ( the parameter indicating average number of events) = 3. P(x=4)=e^-3* (3^4/ 4!)= e^-3* (81/24)= 0.168 This results in a 16.8% chance of the medical examiner's office receiving exactly 4 deceased persons in a given week.
