Question

Starting at time 0, a red bulb flashes according to a Poisson process with rate ?=1 . Similarly, starting at time 0, a blue bulb flashes according to a Poisson process with rate ?=2 , but only until a nonnegative random time ? , at which point the blue bulb “dies." We assume that the two Poisson processes and the random variable ? are (mutually) independent.

Suppose that ? is equal to either 1 or 2, with equal probability. Write down an expression for the probability that there were exactly 3 arrivals during the time interval [0,2] .

(Enter e for the constant ? . You may use standard notation for this numerical entry even though there will be no parser below the answer box. Enter an exact answer or a numerical answer accurate to at least 3 decimal places.)

Probability that there were exactly 3 arrivals during the time interval [0,2] : ??

Answer #1

Solution:

for interval [0,2]

the red bulb flashes with rate 12 = 2

if X = 1 then blue light flash only in time interva; [0,1] thus the
speed are going to be 2

if X = 2 then blue light can flash any time in interval [0,2] thus
the speed are going to be 4

when x=1

p(exactly 3 arrival) = p(3 red flash)p(0 blue flash) +p(2 red
flash)* p(1 blue flash) + p(1 red flash)p(2 blue flash)

+p(3 blue flash)p(0 red flash)

=0.180.135 + 0.0730.271 + 0.2710.271 + 0.1350.18

**=0.195**

similarly when x=2

p(exactly 3 arrival) = **0.089**

p(exactly 3 arrival) = p(x=1)(pexactly 3/x=1) + p(x=2)(pexactly
3/x=2)

=0.50.195+0.50.089

**=0.142**

Starting at time 0, a red bulb flashes according to a Poisson
process with rate ?=1. Similarly, starting at time 0, a blue bulb
flashes according to a Poisson process with rate ?=2, but only
until a nonnegative random time ?, at which point the blue bulb
“dies." We assume that the two Poisson processes and the random
variable ? are (mutually) independent.

Starting at noon, diners arrive at a restaurant according to a
Poisson process at
the rate of five customers per minute. The time each customer
spends eating at
the restaurant has an exponential distribution with mean 40

distribution,
as well as the mean and variance, of the number of diners in the
restaurant at
2 p.m.
