ISE 220 PROBABILITY CONCEPTS IN ENGINEERING Solutions to Homework Problem Set # 4 Instructor: Dr. Ashok Patel Fall 2010 Problem 1 ( 20 points ) D = sum of the arrival times is less than 30 minutes P ( D ) = Area(D)/Area(S) = (1/2) × (30) × (30) / 60 × 60 = 1/8. E = ratio of the arrival times X / Y is less than 2. P ( E ) = Area(E) / Area(S) = (1/2) × (60) × (30) / 60 × 60 = 1/4. Extra : F = multiplication of their arrival time is less than 100 P ( F ) = do it yourself .
