# How to Calculate and Solve for Poisson Probability Distribution | Probability The image above represents Poisson probability distribution.

To compute for Poisson probability distribution, two essential parameters are needed and these parameters are Mean of the Theoretical Distribution (μ) and Number of successes of event A (r).

The formula for Poisson probability distribution:

P(x = r) = e-μ(μr)r!

Where;

P(x = r) = Poisson Probability Distribution
r = Number of Successes of Event A
μ = Mean of the Theoretical Distribution

Let’s solve an example;
Find the poisson probability distribution when the mean of the theoretical distribution is 12 and the number of successes of event A is 6.

This implies that;

r = Number of Successes of Event A = 6
μ = Mean of the Theoretical Distribution = 12

P(x = r) = e-μ(μr)r!
P(x = r) = e-12(12)66!
P(x = r) = (0.00000614)(2985984)(720)
P(x = r) = 0.025

Therefore, the Poisson probability distribution is 0.025.
