HOMEWORK 7 Due date : Thursday March 10 at 4 pm 1. In any one-minute interval, the number of requests for a popular Web page is a Poisson random variable with expected value 300 requests. If the number of requests in a one minute interval is greater than n , where n is the capacity of the Web server, the server is overloaded. Use the central limit theorem to estimate the smallest value of n for which the probability of overload is less than 0.05. 2. Integrated circuits from a certain factory pass a certain quality test with probability 0.8. The outcomes of all tests are independent of each other. A total of 500 circuits are tested every day. What is the probability that more than 400 circuits will pass the quality test? 3. The lifetime of a cheap light bulb is an exponential random variable with mean 50 hours. Suppose that 25 light bulbs are tested and their lifetimes measured. What is the probability that the sum of the lifetimes is less than 1500 hours?

    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.
