Toolbox:
A random variable $X$ is said to have a poisson distribution if the probability mass function of $X$ is
$P(X=x)=\large\frac{e^{\Large -\lambda }\lambda^x}{x!}$$\qquad (x=0,1,2........$ for some $\lambda > 0)$
Constants of a poisson distribution :
Mean=Variance=$\lambda$
The parameter of the Poisson distribution is $\lambda$
A Poisson random variable corresponds to rare events.
Step 1:
Let $X$ be the random variable denoting the number of accidents involving taxi drivers in a year.
$X\sim P(3)$
$P(X=x)=\large\frac{e{-3}3^x}{x!}$
Step 2:
Probability that a taxi driver is not involved in any accident =$P(X=0)=e^{-3}=0.0498$
Out of 1000 drivers the expected number of drivers who will not be involved in any accident =$n\times probability$
$\Rightarrow 1000\times 0.0498=50$(approx)

Alpha particles are emitted by a radio active source at an average rate of $5$ in a $20$ minutes interval.Using poisson distribution find the probability that there will be at least $2$ emission in a particular $20$ minutes interval .$[e^{-5}=0.0067].$
