Acommunicationssatellitesis designedtohaveameantime tofailureof 5yearsstarting from when it becomes operational. One satellite is in operation at any time. When a satellite fails a new one becomes operational. answer the question for the two cases where (i) failures occurs randomly at continuous times according to a Poisson process; (ii) failures occur randomly at positiveinteger number of years according to a Bernouilli process. (a) Find the probability that a satellite will last at least 5 years (b) Find the probability that two satellites will last at least 10 years (c) Find the probability that one satellite will last at least 10 years given it lasts at least 5 years.
