As many as 50 to 150 meteors per hour are visible. Suppose you are watching on the morning of August 12. Assuming all the Poisson conditions are met and that the average rate of appearance is 90 meteors per hour—or 1.5 meteors per minute—use the Poisson table to determine the probability of
a. Exactly three meteors in a random minute.
b. At least five meteors in the next minute.
c. No more than one meteor in the next five minutes.
