Question

A call centre receives, on average, 10 calls per minute. The highest number of calls received in any minute is 15. For any randomly selected minute, find the probability that they will receive:

i. At least 13 calls

ii. At most 2 calls

iii. 7 to 9 calls

iv. Find the Mean, Variance and Standard Deviation of the distribution

show all working

Answer #1

i)

The provided mean is λ=10.

We need to compute Pr(X≥13). Therefore, the following is obtained:

ii)

We need to compute Pr(X≤2). Therefore, the following is obtained:

iii)

We need to compute Pr(7≤X≤9). Therefore, the following is obtained:

iv)

Mean = λ=10.

variance = λ=10.

Standard deviation = sqrt(10) =3.162

A call center in Perth, Australia receives an average of1.3
calls per minute. By looking at the date, a Poissondiscrete
distribution is assumed for this variable. Calculateeach of the
following
.a. The probability of receiving no calls in the firstminute of
its office hours.
b. The probability of receiving 1 call in the first minute.
c. The probability of receiving 3 calls in the first minute.

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 emergency telephone (911) center in a large city receives an
average of 120 calls per hour during a typical day. On average,
each call requires about 121 seconds for a dispatcher to receive
the emergency call, determine the nature and location of the
problem, and send the required individuals (police, firefighters,
or ambulance) to the scene. The center is currently staffed by 4
dispatchers a shift but must have an adequate number of dispatchers
on duty and it has...

On average ten phone calls arrive at a customer service call
center per minute during a specified time of day. Assume all calls
happen independently of each other.
In any given minute, determine the probability that the call
center receives exactly eight phone calls that minute. (to 4
decimals)

A sales firm receives on average three calls per hour on its
toll-free number. For any given hour, find the probability that it
will receive the following:
at most 3 calls.
at least 3 calls.
five or more calls.
between 1 and 4 calls in 2 hours.
Find the average number of calls.
Find the standard deviation of number of calls.

A call center recieves an average of 10 calls per hour. Assuming
the number of calls received follows the poisson distribution,
determine the probability of each of the discrete outcomes below.
Then calculate the variance component for each one using the
standard formula for the variance of a discrete random variable. At
the end, take the sum of both columns.
What excel formula is used to calculate the variance component
for each one using the standard formula for the variance...

A switchboard at some company receives calls following a
probability distribution shown below where the number of calls and
the probability of receiving those calls are recorded.

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?

4. The emergency telephone (911)
center in a large city receives an average of 132 hourly calls per
day. On average, each call requires about 85 seconds for a
dispatcher to receive the emergency call, determine the nature and
location of the problem, and send the required individuals (police,
firefighters, or ambulance) to the scene. The center is currently
staffed by 3 dispatchers a shift but must have an adequate number
of dispatchers on duty and it has asked a...

2. The average number of calls received by a switchboard in a
30-minute period is 5.
a. What is the probability that between 10:00 and 10:30 the
switchboard will receive exactly 6 calls?
b. What is the probability that between 10:00 and 10:30 the
switchboard will receive exactly 8 calls?
