Question

Police response time to an emergency call is the difference between the time the call is first received by the dispatcher and the time a patrol car radios that it has arrived at the scene. Over a long period of time, it has been determined that the police response time has a normal distribution with a mean of 10.0 minutes and a standard deviation of 1.5 minutes. For a randomly received emergency call, find the following probabilities. (Round your answers to four decimal places.)

(a) the response time is between 7 and 11 minutes

(b) the response time is less than 7 minutes

(c) the response time is more than 11 minutes

Answer #1

solution

A)P(7< x <11 ) = P[(7-10.0) / 1.5< (x - ) / < (11-10.0) /1.5 )]

= P(-2 < Z <0.67 )

= P(Z <0.67 ) - P(Z < -2)

Using z table

= 0.7486-0.0228

probability= 0.7258

(B)P(X<7 ) = P[(X- ) / < (7-10.0) / 1.5]

= P(z <-2 )

Using z table

= 0.0228

probability=0.0228

(C)

P(x >11 ) = 1 - P(x<11 )

= 1 - P[(x -) / <(11-10.0) /1.5 ]

= 1 - P(z < 0.67)

Using z table

= 1 - 0.7486

= 0.2514

probability= 0.2514

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
