Question

Customers arrive at Lily’s Barber Shop during a day in any particular business hour according to a Poisson distribution with a rate of ? = 2 per hour. Now the shop has two barbers who can each service a customer in exactly 15 minutes. Suppose a customer, Lisa, arrives at 3:00pm and finds both barbers idle. Find

(i) The probability that we will observe customers waiting before 3:15pm.

(ii) The probability that Lisa will find the shop empty when she leaves.

Answer #1

a) Given, lisa arrives at 3:00pm and finds both barbers idle, we will observe customers waiting before 3:15pm.

if number of customers arriving in 15 minutes (3:00 to 3:15) is 2 or more, noting that one barber would be busy servicing Lisa for 15 minutes since service time is 15 minutes and the second barber can take care of one more customer arrival.

probability that we will observe customers waiting before 3:15pm.

The provided mean is λ=2.

We need to compute Pr(X≥2). Therefore, the following is obtained:

Pr(X≥2) = 1−Pr(X<2)

=1−Pr(X≤1)

= 1 - 0.406

= 0.594

b) Probability that Lisa will find the shop empty when she leaves.

Let ? be the number of female customers who arrive at a barber
shop before the first male customer arrives. The probability of a
female customer arriving at the barber shop is 0.75.
(i) Find ?(? ≥ 8).
(ii) In a random sample of size 36, find the normal
approximation for ?(2.5 ≤ ?̅ ≤ 3.5), where ?̅ is the sample
mean.

Marty's Barber Shop has one barber. Customers have an arrival
rate of 2.3 customers per hour, and haircuts are given with a
service rate of 4 per hour. Use the Poisson arrivals and
exponential service times model to answer the following
questions:
What is the probability that no units are in the system? If
required, round your answer to four decimal places.

A barber owns a one-chair shop. At barber college, he was told
that his customers would exhibit a Poission arrival distribution
and that he would provide an exponential service distribution. His
market survey data indicate that customers arrive at the rate of
two per hour and that it takes him an average of 20 minutes to give
a haircut. Based on these figures, find the following:
The average number of customers waiting in line. (2 pts)
The average time a...

Customers are arriving to a shop according to Poisson process
with mean 2.7 customers/hour. What is the probability that the next
customer will arrive after 23 minutes but before 38 minutes?

A grocery store counts the number of customers who arrive during
an hour. The average over a year is 20 customers per hour. Assume
the arrival of customers follows a Poisson distribution. (It
usually does.)
Find the probability that at least one customer arrives in a
particular one minute period. Round your answer to 3
decimals.
Find the probability that at least two customers arrive in a
particular 4 minute period. Round your answer to four decimals.
