# Simulating from a Poisson and a binomial

If we were flipping 100,000 coins that each have a .2% chance of coming up heads, you could use a Poisson(2) distribution to approximate it. Let's check that through simulation.

Instructions

**100 XP**

- Generate 100,000 draws from the Binomial(1000, .002) distribution. Save it as
`binom_sample`

. - Generate 100,000 draws from the Poisson distribution that approximates this binomial distribution, using the
`rpois()`

function. Save it as`poisson_sample`

. - Compare the two distributions with the
`compare_histograms()`

function. (Remember that this takes two arguments: the two samples that are to be compared).
