Question

The
time between telephone calls to a cable televisiom service call
center follows an exponential distribution with a mean of 1.5
minutes.

a. What is the probability that the time between the next two
calls will be 48 seconds or less?

b. What is the probability that the between the next two calls
will be greater than 118.5 seconds?

Answer #1

**Solution:**

The time between telephone calls to a cable television service call center follows an exponential distribution with a mean of 1.5 minutes or 90 seconds

Therefore, we have:

a. What is the probability that the time between the next two calls will be 48 seconds or less?

**Answer:** We have to find

We know that:

**Therefore, the probability that the time between the
next two calls will be 48 seconds or less is 0.4134**

b. What is the probability that between the next two calls time will be greater than 118.5 seconds?

**Answer:** We have to find here

We know that:

**Therefore, the probability that between the next two
calls time will be greater than 118.5 seconds is
0.2680**

31) The time between telephone calls to cable television
payment processing center follows an [exponential distribution]
with a mean of 1.5 min. Find probability that the time between the
next two calls will be:
a) 45 second or less?
b) Greater than 112.5 sec?

The time between successive arrivals of calls to emergency
service is random variable which
follows exponential distribution. It was observed that on average
calls arrive to emergency
service every four minutes (1 / λ = 4min) and average number of
calls in one minute is λ = 0.25 calls/ 1 min
The probability that the time between successive calls is less
than 2 minutes is ______
A call just arrived to emergency service. The probability that
next call will arrive...

The number of telephone calls per unit of time made to a call
center is often modeled as a Poisson random variable. Historical
data suggest that on the average 15 calls per hour are received by
the call center of a company. What is the probability that the time
between two consecutive calls is longer than 8 minutes? Write all
probability values as numbers between 0 and 1.

The time between arrivals at a toll booth follows an
exponential distribution with a mean time between arrivals of 2
minutes.
What is the probability that the time between two successive
arrivals will be less than 3 minutes?
What is the probability that the time will be between 3 and 1
minutes?

A company receives calls that follows exponential distribution
with an average of 12 calls per hour. The person has already waited
10 minutes for call, what is the probability that he will receive
the call in the next 5 minutes?

Telephone calls arrive at a 911 call center at the rate of 12
calls per hour.
What is the mean number of calls the center expects to receive
in 30 minutes?
What is the standard deviation of the number of calls the center
expects to receive in 30 minutes? (Round your answer to two decimal
places.)
Find the probability that no calls come in for 30 minutes.
(Round your answer to five decimal places.)

The time between arrivals of vehicles at a particular
intersection follows an exponential probability distribution with a
mean of 10 seconds. (a) Sketch this exponential probability
distribution.
(b) What is the probability that the arrival time between
vehicles is 10 seconds or less? (Round your answer to four decimal
places.)
(c) What is the probability that the arrival time between
vehicles is 4 seconds or less? (Round your answer to four decimal
places.)
(d) What is the probability of 30...

at call center, calls come in at an average rate of four calls
per minute. Assume that the time elapsed from one call to the next
has the exponential distribution, and that the times between calls
are independent.
a. find the prob. that after a call is received, the next call
occurs in less than 10 sec.
b. Find a 95% confidence interval for the number of calls in a
minute.

The time it takes to completely tune an engine of an
automobile follows an exponential distribution with a mean of 48
minutes. (Total: 4 marks; 2 marks each)
a. What is the probability of tuning an engine in 36 minutes
or less?
b. What is the probability of tuning an engine between 24 and
36 minutes?

The length of incoming calls at the call centre of a major
telecommunication service provider follows a Normal distribution
with an average of 6.5 minutes. If the standard deviation of the
distribution is 4 minutes, answer the following questions:
(8 points)
What is the probability that the length of an incoming call is
longer than 8.5
minutes?
What is the probability that the length of an incoming call is
shorter than 5
minutes?
What is the probability that the length...
