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?**

an exponential distribution with ? = 15 minutes.

arrival every 15 minutes

4 arrival every 60 minutes (1 hour)

b. Poisson random variable with μ=4

Answer is Option b)Poisson random variable with μ=4

The time between arrivals at a toll booth follows an
exponential distribution with a mean time between arrivals of 2
minutes.
What is the probability that the time between two successive
arrivals will be less than 3 minutes?
What is the probability that the time will be between 3 and 1
minutes?

The waiting time (in minutes) for a new bitcoin block follows an
exponential distribution with? = 15.
a. What is the probability that no blocks are found within 30
minutes?
b. What is the probability that the waiting time for a new block is
between 10 minutes and 20 minutes?
c. What is the probability of finding less than 2 blocks in an
hour?

The exponential distribution is frequently applied
to the waiting times between successes in a Poisson
process. If the number of calls received per hour
by a telephone answering service is a Poisson random
variable with parameter λ = 6, we know that the time,
in hours, between successive calls has an exponential
distribution with parameter β =1/6. What is the probability
of waiting more than 15 minutes between any
two successive calls?

Suppose that the length of time waiting in line for the drive
through at Wendy’s is approximately normally distributed with a
mean time of 136 seconds and a standard deviation of 29 seconds.
Suppose on your most recent visit to Wendy’s you waited 3 minutes,
(180 seconds).
a. Show what is being asked on the diagram below. Label the
horizontal axis with 136, 180 and x.
b. Calculate your Z-score. Show your z-score on the diagram.
c. Interpret the Z-score....

The time between arrivals of vehicles at a particular
intersection follows an exponential probability distribution with a
mean of 10 seconds. (a) Sketch this exponential probability
distribution.
(b) What is the probability that the arrival time between
vehicles is 10 seconds or less? (Round your answer to four decimal
places.)
(c) What is the probability that the arrival time between
vehicles is 4 seconds or less? (Round your answer to four decimal
places.)
(d) What is the probability of 30...

Let X = the time between two successive arrivals at the drive-up
window of a local bank.
Suppose that X has an exponential distribution with an average
time between arrivals of 4
minutes.
a. A car has just left the window. What is probability that it
will take more than 4 minutes before the next drive-up to the
window?
b. A car has just left the window. What is the probability that
it will take more than 5 minutes before...

The waiting time at a certain checkout counter follows an
exponential distribution with a mean waiting time of five
minutes.
a) Compute the probability that an individual customer waits
longer than 5 1/2 minutes at the checkout counter.
b) Compute the exact probability that the average checkout time
for 5 individuals is greater than 5 ½ minutes.
c) Compute the exact probability that the average checkout time
for 15 individuals is greater than 5 ½ minutes.
d) Apply the Central...

Wendy’s drive through waiting time is approximately normally
distributed with a mean of 139 seconds and a standard deviation of
25 seconds. What proportion of wait times are between 100 and 150
seconds? What is the cut off wait time for the bottom 25%?

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...

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
The probability that the time between successive calls is less
than 2 minutes is ______
A call just arrived to emergency service. The probability that
next call will arrive...
