A communications satellites is designed to have a mean time to failure of 5 years starting 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 positive integer 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. (d) Find the probability that two satellites will last at least 20 years given they last at least 10 years. (e) Find the conditional mean lifetime of one satellite given it lasts at least 5 years.

### 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.

• 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.
