Question

On average, 10 patients visit a doctor’s surgery every hour. What is the probability that in the next 15 minutes, more than 1 patient will visit the surgery? Assuming the number of patients visiting a doctor’s surgery follows a Poisson distribution.

Answer #1

Here, = 10/60 * 15 = 2.5

P(X > 1) = 1 - P(X < 1)

= 1 - (P(X = 0) + P(X = 1))

= 1 - 0.2873

= 0.7127

At a doctor’s office, patients are called in from the waiting
room according to a Poisson
distribution with an average of 2 patients every 15
minutes.
c) You are at the doctor’s office and there are 3 patients in
front of you. The time is
now 2:45pm and the first patient has been called in. At what
time do you expect to
be able to leave the doctor’s office (after finishing your
appointment)?
d) What is the probability that a...

the average number of patients arriving at the emergency room is
10 per hour, what probability distribution should be used in order
to find the probability that at least 8 patient will arrive within
the next hour
a-binomial
b-poisson
c-multinomial
d-uniform
e-geometric

At CDE dental office, on average, 30 patients arrive every hour
and are processed at the same rate. Patients wait in line for
registration. On average, it takes 5 minutes for registration, not
including waiting time. A dentist’s assistant sees a patient after
registration and assigns the patient to one of the two tracks, one
for routine cleanings and another for major treatments. On average,
the dentist's assistant spends 20 minutes with each patient. On
average, 2/3 (or 66.67%) of...

Every day, patients arrive at the dentist’s office. If the
Poisson distribution were applied to this process:
a.) What would be an appropriate random variable? What would be
the exponential-distribution counterpart to the random
variable?
b.)If the random discrete variable is Poisson distributed with λ
= 10 patients per hour, and the corresponding exponential
distribution has x = minutes until the next arrival, identify the
mean of x and determine the following:
1. P(x less than or equal to 6)...

At an urgent care facility, patients arrive at an average rate
of one patient every five minutes. Assume that the duration between
arrivals is exponentially distributed. (Round your answers to four
decimal places.)
a. Find the probability that the time between two successive visits
to the urgent care facility is less than four minutes.
b. Find the probability that the time between two successive
visits to the urgent care facility is more than 16 minutes.
c. If 10 minutes have...

General Hospital admits an average of 8 patients per hour. Use
the Poisson probability table below to determine the probability
that between 3 and 7 patients (inclusively) are admitted in the
next 30 minutes.

A customer support center for a computer manufacturer receives
an average of 1.3 phone calls every five minutes. Assume the number
of calls received follows the Poisson distribution.
b. What is the probability that 3 or more calls will arrive
during the next five? minutes?
c. What is the probability that 3 calls will arrive during the
next ten? minutes?
d. What is the probability that no more than 2 calls will arrive
during the next ten? minutes?

Consider an online store where a number of customers visit and
buy a product every hour. Let X be the number of people
who enter the store per hour.
The store is active for 14 hours per day, every day of the week.
It is calculated from data collected that the average number of
customers per hour is 10.
(a) When is it appropriate to
approximate a Poisson Distributed random variable with a Normal
Distribution? State the appropriate parameters for...

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...

Customers visit a restaurant at an average of 10
customers per hour
a) Find the probability that exactly 15 customers
visit the restaurant in a period of two hours
b) Find the probability that exactly 15 customers
visit the restaurant in a period of two hours given that 5 have
visited during the first hour
