Question

A street noodle vendor in Singapore can service an average of 10 customers per hour. Given an average arrival rate of 8 customers per hour, use the Poisson distribution to calculate the probability that the vendor can handle the demand.

What is the probability of having, at most, 10 customers arriving within 1 hour?

Answer #1

Please Look as i have taken value of e^-8 upto few decimal places thats why the answer comes out to be 0.8147 (as it was not mentioned in the question upto how much decimal places we have to calculate accurate answer).

NOTE : **The answer is not incorrect, actually i have
taken few decimal places and my answer is correct upto two decimal
places. If we consider more accurate calculation involving more
decimal places than it comes out to be 0.81588579255 which
approximates well to the first option of 0.8159.**

As the assistant bank manager, you want to provide prompt
service for customers at your bank's drive thru window. The bank
can currently serve up to 10 customers per 15-minute period without
significant delay. The average arrival rate is 7 customers per
15-minute period. Let x denote the number of customers arriving per
15-minute period. Assume this is a Poisson distribution.
a. Find the probability that 10 customers will arrive in a
particular 15-minute period.
b. Find the probability that...

Arrival Rate = 1/50 = 0.02 calls hour.
Service Rate= 1 hour (travel time) + 1.5 hour (repair
time) =2.5 hours
With m = 1/ 2.5 = 0.4 hours per customers
