Step-by-step explanation:You are given that claims are reported according to a homogeneous Poisson process

LetX be the waiting time from 0 to second claim

X is Poisson with averageof 3 hours.

We know in a Poisson distribution the mean = variance

Hence average waiting time = mean = 3

This will also be equal to var(x)

Var(x) = mean of Poisson distribution= 3

Hence standard deviation = square root of variance
