Homework 5, 550.111 Statistical Analysis I, Spring 2011 At the end of this assignment you will find a list of useful values for Φ. Problem 1: Suppose X = the number of patients needing beds at a particular hospital tomorrow has a Poisson distribution with expected value 2 . 8. Just how many beds are needed so that there is at least an 90% chance that there will not be a shortage of beds tomorrow? Problem 2: Suppose that Y = the number of earthquakes anywhere in the world next year of magnitude 7 . 8 or greater is a Poisson random variable with expected value 1 . 6. a) What is the probability of having between 2 and 4 such earthquakes (inclusive) next year? b) What is the probability that there will be at least one such earthquake next year? Problem 3: There are two noncontagious diseases A and B, and suppose that disease A occurs in 30% of the population and disease B occurs in just 2% of the population. Now suppose that there is a particular group of 125 randomly selected people which we are interested in.

    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.
