STA 4322/5328 – Project 1 – Spring 2010 Due Thursday Feb. 4 Part 1: Customers arriving at a Restaurant The number of customers arriving at Cow-Fil-A between 11:30 and 1:30 on weekdays follows a Poisson distribution with mean λ =25 per 10 minute period. The manager observes the number of arrivals in each 10 minute period (and treats them as independent observations). Thus on a given day, she observes: 12 1 ,..., Y Y ~ Poisson( λ =25) and each day she computes: ( 29 = = - - = = n i i i i Y Y n S Y Y 1 2 2 12 1 1 1 and 12 1 1. Give the mean and variance of Y 2. Give the theoretical mean and variance of Y 3. If 12 1 ,..., Y Y ~N( μ,σ 2 ), what would be the distribution of (n-1)S 2 / σ 2 ? 4. Obtain m=10,000 random samples of n=12 from the Poisson ( λ =25) distribution, and obtain the sample mean and variance of each sample. a. Give histograms of the sample means and variances b. Give the empirical mean and variance for the sample mean and variance: ( 29 ( 29 = = = = - = = - = = 10000 1 2 2 2 2 10000 1 2 2 10000 1 2 2 10000 1 10000 1 10000 1 10000 1 10000 1 2 j j s j j j j Y j j S S S S S Y Y S Y Y c.

### 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.
