1) Suppose the number of fleas on a stray dog follows a Poisson distribution with mean 28.  Would it be unusual to find a dog with 38 fleas?

2) Suppose you play a daily lottery where you have a 1 in 10 chance of winning something.
 a) If you play for 10 days in a row, what is the probability you win at least once?
 b) What is the expected number of times you win?

3) SAT math scores are normally distributed with a mean of 512 points and a standard deviation of 112 points.
 a) If a random sample of 12 people take the test, what is the probability their average score will be under 500?
 b) Suppose a college wants to admit only those applicants in the top 10%.  What cut-off should they use?
