Example 4.73: If X and Y are two independent random Poisson random variables such that Var[X]+Var[Y]=3. Find P(X+Y<2)?

Solution: Let X and Y follow Poisson distribution.

Let λ1 be the mean of X and λ2 be the mean of Y.

Then by additive property X+Y follows Poisson distribution with mean λ1+λ2.

We have Var[X]+Var[Y]=λ1+λ2=3(given)

λ=λ1+λ2
