Question

- Suppose that no data has been recorded on the time that it
takes for a provider to see a patient in a particular clinic, but
it has been estimated that the minimum amount of time is 10
minutes, the maximum amount of time is 50 minutes, and the most
likely times is about 25 minutes.
- What probability distribution would you use to model the time that it takes this provider to see a patient in this clinic?
- What is the probability that the provider will spend more than 30 minutes with a patient?
- Assume that you used an Exponential distribution instead of that used in part a, what is the probability that the provider will spend more than 30 minutes with a patient?

Answer #1

**continuous uniform
distribution** to model the time that it takes this provider
to see a patient in this clinic. The parameters will be: a (lower
limit) = 10 and b (upper limit) = 50.

4. Suppose that no data has been recorded on the time that it
takes for a provider to see a patient in a particular clinic, but
it has been estimated that the minimum amount of time is 10
minutes, the maximum amount of time is 50 minutes, and the most
likely times is about 25 minutes. What probability distribution
would you use to model the time that it takes this provider to see
a patient in this clinic? What is...

Doctors at a particular clinic never see a patient on time. The
amount of time (in minutes)
past the appointment time that a patient must wait to see a
doctor has an exponential distribution with λ = .027.
a) What is the variance of the amount of time the patient will
have to wait beyond the appointment time?
b) Compute the probability that the doctor will see the patient
less than 40 minutes after the appointment time?

Suppose that the amount of time you spend working on STAT 3600
homework follows an exponential distribution with mean 60 minutes.
a. What is the probability that it takes you less than 50 minutes
to complete the homework? b. Given that you have already spent 40
minutes on the homework and have not finished, what is the
probability that you will spend at least 70 minutes on the
homework?

The median time a patient waits to see a doctor in a large
clinic is 20 minutes. On a day when 10 patients visit the clinic,
what is the probability that more than half but fewer than 8 of ten
patients will wait less than 20 minutes?

Old Billie and her son Hadey are arguing about how much time
their fellow goats spend listening to music each day. Old Billie
contends that the goats spend between 0 and 80 minutes each day
listening to music, and she insists that no range of times is ay
more likely than any other. Hadey argues that it doesn't make sense
to believe that goats are just as likely to spend more time than
two hours listening to music as they...

John, James, and Jonathan is a dental clinic serving the needs
of the general public on a first-come, first served basis. The
clinic has three dental chairs, each staffed by a dentist. Patients
arrive at the rate of five per hour, according to a Poisson
distribution, and do not balk or renege. The average time required
for a dental check-up is 30 minutes, according to an exponential
distribution.
What is the probability that no patients are in the
clinic?

Moore, Aiken, and Payne is a critical-care dental clinic serving
the emergency needs of the general public on a first-come,
first-served basis. The clinic has four dental chairs, three of
which
are currently staffed by a dentist. Patients in distress arrive at
the rate of five per hour, according to a Poisson distribution, and
do not balk or renege. The average time required for an emergency
treatment is 30 minutes, and has an exponential distribution.

1. The process time of oil change in a car follows an
exponential distribution with a mean of 5 minutes. What is the

minutes?
2. What is the probability that a process of oil change takes
between 3 and 5 minutes?
