I have a dataset of 78.903 news articles pertaining to 340 corporate takeovers.
Mean 231.3871 [articles per takeover]
Std. Dev. 673.6395

I would like to calculate the probability of a certain number of news articles if I had more takeovers available. How likely is it to have X articles if I had Y takeovers?

How can I do that?

Thank you very much,
