Let X = the time between two successive arrivals at the drive-up
window of a local bank.
Suppose that X has an exponential distribution with an average
time between arrivals of 4
minutes.
a. A car has just left the window. What is probability that it
will take more than 4 minutes before the next drive-up to the
window?
b. A car has just left the window. What is the probability that
it will take more than 5 minutes before...

Let X = the time between two successive arrivals at the drive-up
window of a local bank. If X has an exponential distribution with λ
= 1/3 , compute the following:
a. If no one comes to the drive-up window in the next 15 minutes
(starting now), what is the chance that no one will show up during
the next 20 minutes (starting now)?
b. Find the probability that two people arrive in the next
minute.
c. How many people...

Let X = the time between two successive arrivals at the drive-up
window of a local bank. If X has an exponential distribution with
λ=1, compute the following:
a) The expected time between two successive arrivals
b) The standard deviation of the time between success
arrivals
c) Calculate the probability P (X≤3)
d) Calculate the probability P(2≤X≤5)

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 time between arrivals of taxis at a busy intersection is
exponentially distributed with a mean of 10 minutes.
(i) What is the probability that you wait longer than one hour
for a taxi?
(ii) Suppose that you have already been waiting for one hour for
a taxi. What is the probability that one arrives within the next 10
minutes?
(iii) Determine x such that the probability that you wait more
than x minutes is 0.10.
(iv) Determine x such...

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?

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...

If the number of arrivals in a cell phone shop follows a Poisson
distribution, with a reason of 10 clients per hour:
What is the probability that in the next half hour, 4 clients
arrive?
What is the probability that in the next two hours, between 18
and 22 clients arrive?
What is the average time between arrivals?
What is the median of the time between arrivals?
What is the probability that the time that transpires for the
next arrival...

Suppose that the time between successive occurrences of an event
follows an exponential distribution with mean number of occurrences
per minute given by λ = 5. Assume that an event occurs. (A) Derive
the probability that more than 2 minutes elapses before the
occurrence of the next event. Derive the probability that more than
4 minutes elapses before the occurrence of the next event. (B) Use
to previous results to show: Given that 2 minutes have already
elapsed, what is...

Suppose that the time between arrivals of customers at a bank
during the noon-to-1 p.m. hour has a uniform distribution between
0 and 30 seconds. a. What is the probability that the time between
the arrivals of two customers will be less than 14 seconds? b.
What is the probability that the time between the arrivals of two
customers will be between 11 and 19 seconds? c. What is the
probability that the time between the arrivals of two customers...
