In probability theory and statistics, the Poisson distribution (French pronunciation: [pwasɔ̃]; in English often rendered / ˈpwɑːsɒn /), named after French mathematician Siméon Denis Poisson, is a discrete probability distribution that expresses the probability of a given number of events occurring in a fixed interval of time or space if these events occur with a known constant rate and independently of the time since the last event. Let \(X_1, \dots, X_n\) be Poisson random variables with parameter \(\lambda = 0.5\) and where \(n=21\). Estimate the probability that the sample mean is greater than the sample median. Question 5. Let \(U\) come from a uniform(0,1) distribution and \(Z\) come from a standard normal distribution.
