Poisson[ <Mean λ> ]
Returns a bar graph of a Poisson distribution with given mean λ.
Poisson[ <Mean λ>, <Boolean Cumulative> ]

Returns a bar graph of a cumulative Poisson distribution when Cumulative = true.
The first parameter is same as above.
Poisson[ <Mean λ>, <Variable Value v>,<Boolean Cumulative> ]

Returns P( X = v) when Cumulative = false.
Returns P( X ≤ v) when Cumulative = true.
First parameter is same as above.
