The survival time in days of a soldier exposed to a chemically contaminated environment follows an exponential distribution with parameter 1 =0.053. -a. What is the probability that the soldier survives for more than 21 days? ﬁx :2: 21) z (13sz b. What is the probability that the soldier survives between 15 and 18 days? 906%: X :2 1‘3)?“ QOWL; c. What is the probability that the soldier survives less than 1 day? RX :2: 1): drama 2. The time in days between breakdowns of the USCC e-mail server is exponentially distributed with A = 0.216. a.

What is the probability that the server will break down within 5 days of its last failure? F(>< M); Mém/ d. What is the probability that after the server is repaired it lasts at least a week before failing again? [TX :37): o. 2: 205' e. If the server has performed satisfactorily for six days, what is the probability that it lasts at least two additional days before breaking down? 1 Men/wrﬂ/ﬁgg ftvkﬂpekv 2 Z): O’ 3. The time between arrivals of soldiers in hours at a battalion aid station is exponentially distributed with 9» = 0.864. Let A = the time between two successive arrivals. a.

A ﬁrst class cadet bought himself a used sports car to quickly transport him between his rockbound highland home and his numerous weekend excursion points. Unfortunately, it tended to break down quite frequently. The time between breakdowns (represented by the random variable T) can be modeled by an exponential distribution where its expected value E (T) is 16 hours' E'Crbwc—rfr 3‘0 Aaﬁaonwar a. ’What is the probability that the next breakdown will occur within 4 hours of the last breakdown? @(Tévalp): o, 2212 b.

What students are saying

• 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.

Dana University of Pennsylvania ‘17, Course Hero Intern

• 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.
