Sheet1 Page 1 Probability, Third Edition By David J Carr & Michael A Gauger Published by BPP Professional Education Solution 9.1 Let X be the number of demands made each day, and let Y be the number of demands handled. Then we have: Y=min{X,3 } and: Pr (Y=0)=Pr (X=0)=e-2 =0.13534 Pr (Y=1)=Pr (X=1)=2e-2 =0.27067 02/02/09 Pr (Y=2)=Pr (X=2)= 2 e =0.27067 2! Pr (Y=3)=Pr (X=3)=1 -0.13534 -0.27067 -0.27067 =0.32332 Hence, the expected number of demands handled is: [] 0 0.13534 +1 0.27067 +2 0.27067 +3 0.32332 EY Err:501 1.78 Solution 9.2 We can calculate [][2 in terms of EX and EX2]: EY and EY ][][ 88 8 [] =SyPr( =y) =SyPr( =y) =(1 -a)SyPr( X=y) =(1 -aEX ] =(1 - ) y=0 y=1 y=1 Solutions to practice questions h Chapter 9 EYY Y )[ ah
