Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[\lambda=\frac{1}{15000}\times 2000=\frac{2}{15}\] \[P(X=1)=\frac{e ^{\lambda}\lambda ^{1}}{1!}=you\ can\ calculate\] Then you will need to calculate P(X = 2), P(X = 3) and so on until the value becomes insignificant. After that the appropriate values of probability must be added to find the probability that there will be at least one major earthquake in the next 2000 days.
