ECEN-646 Homework 2 Solutions 1 C ¸inlar Exercise 4.9, Chapter 1 (a) P ( X t ) = 1 e 0 . 2 t 0 . 2 te 0 . 2 t t 0 P ( X > t ) = 1 P ( X t ) = e 0 . 2 t + 0 . 2 te 0 . 2 t = (1 + 0 . 2 t ) e 0 . 2 t t 0 The problem asks for P ( X > t + s | X > t ) = P ( { X > t + s } ∩ { X > t } ) P ( X > t ) = P ( X > t + s ) P ( X > t ) = (1 + 0 . 2( t + s )) e 0 . 2( t + s ) (1 + 0 . 2 t ) e 0 . 2 t = (1 + 0 . 2( t + s )) e 0 . 2 s (1 + 0 . 2 t ) Substituting t = 3 and s = 1 . 5 we get the probability that having worked successfully for first 3 hours, the component works successfully for at least 1.5 hrs more as, P ( X > 4 . 5) = (1 + 0 . 2 × 4 . 5) e 0 . 2 × 1 . 5 (1 + 0 . 2 × 3) = 1 . 9 e 0 . 3 1 . 6 0 . 8797 2 C ¸inlar Exercise 4.10, Chapter 1 Let A i be the event that the a th i character is printed. Let I denote the impulse chosen. The printing machine’s behaviour can be characterized as P ( A i | I = i ) = p P ( A j | I = i ) = (1 p ) n 1 j negationslash = i P ( I = i ) = 1 n 1 This study resource was shared via CourseHero.com

    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.
