Qatar University College of Engineering First Mid-Term Exam – GENG 200 Probability and Statistics for Engineers Instructor Dr. A.Sleptchenko Date: November 6, 2013 Exam Duration: 70 minutes CLOSED BOOK, CLOSED NOTES Notes: 1 - Answer all questions 2 - Provide as many details as possible, unclear answer might lead to lower mark Question #1: A machine produces certain parts in batches of size 50. Length of each produced part is exponentially distributed with expected length 20cm. Part is considered as not satisfying quality control (failed) if its length exceeds certain limit. (a) Failure length is set to 32cm. 13 points What is the probability for a part to fail? P(fail) = P(X>32) = 1-P(X<=32) = 1-(1-exp(-1/20 * 32)) = 0.2019 (b) Assume now that probability for a part to fail is 0.2. 12 points The parts from the batch are inspected until one failed is found. What is probability to discard the batch after inspecting not more than 4 parts? Geometric distribution with p=0.2 should be used P(discard) = P(X<=4) = p + (1-p)p + (1-p) 2 p + (1-p) 3 p = 0.2 + 0.8 * 0.2 + 0.8 2 * 0.2 + 0.8 3 * 0.2 = 0.5904 (c) Assume now that probability for a part to fail is 0.2.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
