b. Calculate the probability that you will have at least 2 interruptions tomorrow.

Answer #1

TOPIC:Poisson distribution.

Struggling with Poisson Distribution. Please could you explain
the calculation?
Assume that a number of network errors experienced in a day in a
local area network are distributed as a Poisson random variable.
The mean number of network errors experienced in a day is 1.6.
1) Work out the probability that in any given day more than two
network errors will occur
2) Work out the probability that in any given day two or more
network errors will occur
3)...

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?
What is the probability of less than two accidents in ten
minutes?
What is the probability that the time between two successive
accidents is at least ten minutes?
If ten minutes have gone by without an accident, what is the
probability that an accident will occur in the...

emails per day?
b) What is the probability that you receive at least 1
junk email per day?
c) What is the probability that you receive at most 3
junk emails per day?
d) What is the likelihood of receiving between 3 and 6
junk emails per day?

The number of times a geyser erupts in one day follows a Poisson
distribution with mean 2.5. On a randomly selected day:
(a) what is the probability that there are no eruptions? (b)
what is the probability of at least 3 eruptions?

The number of customers that enter a Starbucks follows a Poisson
distribution with an average of 2 customers every 15 minutes.
(a) What is the probability that on the next hour at least six
customers enter this Starbucks?
(b) Assuming that a customer just walked in, what is the
probability that the next customer walks in after 15 minutes?
(c) Suppose 5% of people who pass this Starbucks enter for a
coffee. What are the chances that among the next...

4 pages will have at least 13 errors?
B) What is the probability that the local news section
consisting of 5 pages will have no more than 17 errors?
C) What is the probability that that there will be between 10
and 18 errors in the main...

standard deviation of the mean? Clearly state the random variable
of interest using the context of the problem and what probability
distribution it follows.
