I am studying probability theory and one of the questions that I have faced is this. The problem is that I either don't know where to go about with this question or even if I do do something about it, I have no way of knowing if I'm on the right path. Is it possible to please help explain this?
Q. In Germany, every year 125 people out of 100 000 report the occurrence of Parkinson's Disease. a) Which kind of distribution would you use to model the occurrence of new cases per year?
b) Garching has a population of 17500, compute the probability that no more than 2 cases of the disease are encountered per year.(don’t calculate numeric value, but show the pdf or cdf computation that you do)
