Assume that Y denotes the number of bacteria per cubic centimetre in a particular liquid and that Y has a Poisson distribution with parameter . Further assume that varies from location to location according to a gamma distribution with parameters and , where is a positive integer. If we randomly select a location, what is the (A) expected number of bacteria per cubic centimetre? (B) standard deviation of the number of bacteria per cubic centimetre?
