- Draw
`10000`

samples from a Poisson distribution with a mean of`251/115`

and assign to`n_nohitters`

. - Determine how many of your samples had a result greater than or equal to
`7`

and assign to`n_large`

. - Compute the probability,
`p_large`

, of having`7`

or more no-hitters by dividing`n_large`

by the total number of samples (`10000`

). - Hit 'Submit Answer' to print the probability that you calculated.
