    Post Need help with this problem




    On average, every six minutes a car passes by a sector in which it plans to build a tunnel. The passage of many vehicles indicate risk of congestion in the new construction. The engineers in charge of the project need to determine whether the probability that in one hour more than 5 vehicles that circulate by the sector is less than 0.04.
