Question

The number of people arriving for treatment in one hour at an emergency room can be modeled by a random variable X. Mean of X is 5.

a) What’s the probability that at least 4 arrivals occurring?

b) Suppose the probability of treating no patient in another emergency room is 0.05, which emergency room could be busier? Why?

Answer #1

given that

The number of people arriving for treatment in one hour at an emergency room can be modeled by a random variable X

here mean of X=5

so X is Poisson distribution with

Hence

a)

Here we have to find P(X>4)

now

b)

since the probability of treating no patient in another emergency room is 0.05

while we check that probability that there is no patient treating for that we need P(X=0)

now

since probability of treating no patient at first emergency room is 0.007 which is less than that of 2nd emergency no.(0.05)

Hence first emergecny room is more busy than 2nd one.

The number of people arriving for treatment at an emergency room
can be modeled by a Poisson process with a rate parameter of five
per hour. By using Poisson Distributions. Find:
(i) What is the probability that exactly four arrivals occur
during a particular hour?
(ii) What is the probability that at least four people arrive
during a particular hour?
(iii) What is the probability that at least one person arrive
during a particular minute?
(iv) How many people do...

the average number of patients arriving at the emergency room is
10 per hour, what probability distribution should be used in order
to find the probability that at least 8 patient will arrive within
the next hour
a-binomial
b-poisson
c-multinomial
d-uniform
e-geometric

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?
d. One in four patients who come to the emergency room in hospital. Calculate the...

The number of emails arriving at a server during any one hour
period is known to be a Poisson random variable X with λ = β. The
probability of an email being spam is p.
What is the probability mass function, expected value, and
variance of spam emails in a period of one hour?

The administrator at the City Hospital’s emergency room faces a
problem of providing treatment for patients that arrive at
different rates during the day. There are four doctors available to
treat patients when needed. If not needed, they can be assigned to
other responsibilities (for example, lab tests, reports, x-ray
diagnoses, etc.) or else rescheduled to work at other hours.
It is important to provide quick and responsive treatment, and
the administrator feels that, on the average, patients should not...

Suppose that the number of persons using an ATM in any given
hour between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. can be modeled by a Poisson
distribution with a mean of 12. In this case, the “unit of measure”
is an hour of time during the business day. Let X be the number of
periods who use the ATM in a given hour.
What is the standard deviation of the random variable X, i.e.,
the standard deviation of this Poisson distribution?...

Suppose you have a treatment for a rare disease. If you apply
this treatment to a person, they have a 32% chance of recovery.
Suppose you apply your treatment to twelve patients. Show all work
using the formula, do not use software. Let X be the number of
patients who recover. (SHOW YOUR WORK)
(a) To ensure that this is a binomial random variable we must
assume something about our
trials/ patients. What do we have to assume about our...

How many in a car? A study of rush-hour traffic in San Francisco
counts the number of people in each car entering a freeway at a
suburban interchange. Suppose that the number of people per car in
the population of all cars that enter at this interchange during
rush hours has a mean of μ = 1.7 and a standard deviation of σ =
0.85.
What is the probability that the mean number of people in a
random sample of...
