Unformatted text preview: distributed, with a MTBF (mean time between failure) of 2.5 years. Find the probability that the time between successive failures will be greater than the MTBF. Problem 3 Today you buy four new cordless phones for your business office. Upon inquiry, the manufacturer notifies you that past performance of this particular design indicates a MTBF of 34 months. What is the probability that: (a) all four phones will be operating 34 months from now? (b) at least one (i.e., one or more) will have failed 20 months from now?...
