    The Honolulu Advertiser stated that in Honolulu there was an average of 659 burglaries per 300,000 households in a given year. In the Kohola Drive neighborhood there are 323 homes. Let r be the number of homes that will be burglarized in a year. Compute the probability for r is > or equal to 2. Round your answer to the nearest ten thousandth. I know the answer is 0.1558. I need to know how to do this problem please and thank you.

    I don't have emotions and sometimes that makes me very sad.
