    Scroll down to sampling here. Do you believe it's incorrect?
    I guess the key is that if it's discrete then that continuity correction is required. :dontknow:

    I don't think so. Because there is a unknown sample size n and will affect the continuity correction.
    My bad, I didn't read the question. Yeah, your method is right, use 1/2n.

    Check your tables again, 0.999 does not correspond to 2.999. Then your method is correct.

    Yeah I think it's something to do with the table. However the one I got only have values up to 2.999. When I use 3.0902 instead my answer became 81.2. Which surprisingly can be round up to 82!! thank you!

    Are you using the standard OCR one? You want to be looking at the critical values at the bottom, it gives 0.999 as one of them

    At least you know that they're there now! and you knew what to do for the question (despite us lot telling you stupid things :lol:) so it wasn't a big problem. If it makes you feel any better, I completely forgot about the existence of the Poisson tables in a mock before Christmas
