MAT 540 Week 3 Homework Chapter 14

Chapter 141. The Hoylake Rescue Squad receives an emergency call every 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, or 6 hours, according to the following probability distribution. The squad is on duty 24 hours per day, 7 days per week:Time BetweenEmergency Calls (hr.)Probability10.0520.1030.3040.3050.2060.051.00a. Simulate the emergency calls for 3 days (note that this will require a “running”, or cumulative, hourly clock), using the random number table.b. Compute the average time between calls and compare this value with the expected value of the time between calls from the probability distribution. Why are the results different?2. The time between arrivals of cars at the Petroco Service Station is defined by the following probability distribution:Time BetweenArrivals (min.)Probability10.2520.3030.3540.101.00
