Question

If a phone call is received once every 10 minutes on average, during a one-hour interval,

1) The probability that exactly one phone call is received during the first 30 minutes and exactly two calls in the last 30 minutes

2) The expected value of the distribution of the time of the arrival of the first call

3) The probability that the second phone call is received between 30-40 minutes

4) The probability that the third phone call is received during the last 20 minutes

5) The probability that two or more phone calls are received during the 60-minute interval

Answer #1

events/time = 1/10 calls/min = 0.1 calls/min

1.

P(1 call in first 30 min , 2 call in last 30 min)

= P(1 call in first 30 min)*P(2 call in last 30 min)

= [e^(-0.1*30)*(0.1*30)^1 / (1!)] * [ e^(-0.1*30) * (0.1*30)^2 / (2!)]

= **0.0335**

2.

E(ariival if first call) = 1 / rate = 1 / 0.1 = 10 min

3.

P(second call between 30-40 min) = P(1st call in 30 min)*P(1 call in next 10 min{i.e. between 30-40min})

= [e^(-0.1*30)*(0.1*30)^1 / (1!)] * [e^(-0.1*10)*(0.1*10)^1 / (1!)]

= **0.0550**

4.

P(3 rd phone call in last 20 min) = P(2 call in 40 min)*P(1 call in 20 min)

= [e^(-0.1*40)*(0.1*40)^2 / (2!)] * [e^(-0.1*20)*(0.1*20)^1 / (1!)]

= **0.0397**

5.

P(2 or more call in 60 min)

= 1 - P(0) - P(1)

= 1 - [e^(-0.1*60)*(0.1*60)^0 / (0!)] - [e^(-0.1*60)*(0.1*60)^1 / (1!)]

= **0.9826**

On the average, there is one new customer calling in to a call
center every 20 minutes. Assume the
number of calls follows the Poisson process.
(a) What is the probability that in the next 40 minutes, exactly 3
new customers will call?
(b) What is the probability that there are no calls in the next
hour?

Q1.(15) At one call center, assume the probability of receiving
one phone call in a given time period is the same, and the numbers
of phone calls in one time period is independent from others. It is
known that the average number of phone calls in any one hour is 10.
One hour period is randomly selected.

On average ten phone calls arrive at a customer service call
center per minute during a specified time of day. Assume all calls
happen independently of each other.
In any given minute, determine the probability that the call
center receives exactly eight phone calls that minute. (to 4
decimals)

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?

An automatic phone station receives 300 calls in an hour. Use
Poisson distribution to find the probability of receiving exactly
two calls in a given minute. Compare your answer with the result
that one can obtain by using the binomial distribution.

One of the earliest applications of the Poisson distribution was
in analyzing incoming calls to a telephone switchboard. Analysts
generally believe that random phone calls are Poisson distributed.
Suppose phone calls to a switchboard arrive at an average rate of
2.2 calls per minute. (Round to 4 decimal places)
