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)6} ⁄ _{6!}

P(x = r) = ^{(0.00000614)(2985984)} ⁄ _{(720)}

P(x = r) = 0.025

Therefore, the **Poisson probability distribution **is **0.025.**
