Question

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 is between 5 and 10 minutes?

Answer #1

1)expected number of clients in half hour =10*30/60=5

hence probability that in the next half hour, 4 clients
arrive=P(X=4)=e^{-5}*5^{4}/4! =0.1755

2)expected number of clients in 2 hour =2*10=20

probability that in the next two hours, between 18 and 22 clients arrive

=P(18<=X<=22)=(e^{-20}20^{18}/18!+e^{-20}20^{19}/19!+e^{-20}20^{20}/20!+e^{-20}20^{21}/21!+e^{-20}20^{22}/22!)=0.4236

3)average time between arrivals =60/10 =6 minute=

4)

median of the time between arrivals =ln(2)=4.159

5)

probability that the time that transpires for the next arrival is between 5 and 10 minutes=P(5<X<10)

=(1-e^{-10/6})-(1-e^{-5/6})=0.2457

Arrivals at a bank are Poisson distributed with a mean arrival
rate of two arrivals every five minutes.
a) What is the probability of exactly two arrivals in the next
four minutes?
b) Assuming that the previous arrival came to the bank 10
minutes ago (with no arrivals since then), what is the probability
that the time to next arrival will be greater than 1 minute?

Assume that arrivals come from two independent Poisson processes
of males and females with respective rates of λ=4/hr and
µ=6/hr.
If the system is currently empty, find the probability that
(a) there will be no arrivals in the next 10 minutes;
(b) there will be no arrivals in the next 10 minutes, given the
last arrival was over 9 minutes ago;
(c) there will be no males arriving in the next 10 minutes, but
at least one female;
(d) a...

Every day, patients arrive at the dentist’s office. If the
Poisson distribution were applied to this process:
a.) What would be an appropriate random variable? What would be
the exponential-distribution counterpart to the random
variable?
b.)If the random discrete variable is Poisson distributed with λ
= 10 patients per hour, and the corresponding exponential
distribution has x = minutes until the next arrival, identify the
mean of x and determine the following:
1. P(x less than or equal to 6)...

You have observed that the number of hits to your web site
follows a Poisson distribution at a rate of 3 per hour. Let X is
the time between hits and it follows Exponential distribution.
1. What is an average time in minutes between two hits?
2. What is the probability, that you will need to wait less than
40 minutes between two hits?
3. What is the probability, that there will be 2 hits in the
next hour?
1....

a.What is the probability that exactly 7 patients will arrive during the next hour?
b. What is the probability that at least 7 patients will arrive during the next hour?
c. How many people do you expect to arrive in the next two hours?

At an airport domestic flight arrive according to a Poisson
distribution with rate 5 per hour, and international flights arrive
according to a Poisson distribution with rate 1 per hour. What is
the probability that the time between third and fourth flight
arrivals is more than 15 minutes?

2. The waiting time between arrivals at a Wendy’s drive-through
follows an exponential distribution with ? = 15 minutes. What is
the distribution of the number of arrivals in an hour?
a. Poisson random variable with μ=15
b. Poisson random variable with μ=4
c. Exponential random variable with ?=15
d. Exponential random variable with ?=4

Suppose that the number of accidents occurring on a highway per
hour follows a Poisson distribution with a mean of 1.25.
What is the probability of exactly three accidents occur in
hour?

minutes?
What is the probability that the time between two successive
