Question

. A hotel’s reservation center receives 180 calls on average from 9:00 AM – 10:00 AM, and the number of calls in that hour can be modeled by a Poisson random variable. (a) (8 pts) Find the probability that more than one call come in the one-minute period 9:26 AM – 9:27 AM. (b) (8 pts) Find the probability that the first call after 9:00 AM actually comes in after 9:02 AM.

Answer #1

a)

Let X denote the number of calls in a 1-minute period.

Then

Required probability =

b)

Let X denote the number of calls in a 2-minute period.

Then

Required probability = P(first call after 9:00 AM actually comes in after 9:02 AM)

= P(No call during 9:00 AM to 9:02 AM)

Assume that the number of calls coming into a hotel’s
reservation center follow a Poisson process with a mean of four
calls per minute.
a. Find the probability that no calls will arrive in a given
2-minute period.
b. Find the probability that at least ten calls will arrive in a
given 3-minute period.
c. Find the probability that at least twenty calls will arrive
in a given 5-minute period

The number of calls received by an office on Monday morning
between 8:00 AM and 9:00 AM has a mean of 6. Calculate the
probability of getting at least 1 call between eight and nine in
the morning. Round your answer to four decimal places.

The number of calls received by an office on Monday morning
between 8:00 AM and 9:00 AM has a mean of 5. Calculate the
probability of getting no more than 1 call between eight and nine
in the morning. Round your answer to four decimal places.

The emergency telephone (911) center in a large city receives an
average of 120 calls per hour during a typical day. On average,
each call requires about 121 seconds for a dispatcher to receive
the emergency call, determine the nature and location of the
problem, and send the required individuals (police, firefighters,
or ambulance) to the scene. The center is currently staffed by 4
dispatchers a shift but must have an adequate number of dispatchers
on duty and it has...

at call center, calls come in at an average rate of four calls
per minute. Assume that the time elapsed from one call to the next
has the exponential distribution, and that the times between calls
are independent.
a. find the prob. that after a call is received, the next call
occurs in less than 10 sec.
b. Find a 95% confidence interval for the number of calls in a
minute.

A call centre receives, on average, 10 calls per minute. The
highest number of calls received in any minute is 15. For any
randomly selected minute, find the probability that they will
receive:
i. At least 13 calls
ii. At most 2 calls
iii. 7 to 9 calls
iv. Find the Mean, Variance and Standard Deviation of the
distribution

4. The emergency telephone (911)
center in a large city receives an average of 132 hourly calls per
day. On average, each call requires about 85 seconds for a
dispatcher to receive the emergency call, determine the nature and
location of the problem, and send the required individuals (police,
firefighters, or ambulance) to the scene. The center is currently
staffed by 3 dispatchers a shift but must have an adequate number
of dispatchers on duty and it has asked a...
