# An insurance

An insurance company receives, on average, two claims per week from a particular factory. Assuming that a Poisson distribution can model the number of claims, find the probability it receives.

three claims in a given week,

more than four claims in a given week,

four claims in a given fortnight,

no claims on a given day, assuming that the factory operates on a five-day week.
