1. Probability and Statistics for Engineering (ESE 326) Exam2 March 22.2011 This exam contains 10 multiple-choice problems worth two points each, four true-false problems worth one point each, nine short-answer problems worth one point each, and one free-response problem worth seven points, for an exam total of 40 points. Part I. Multiple-Choice (two points each) Clearly fill in the oval on your answer card which corresponds to the only correct response. Corey's gerbils escape from their cage, on average, once every four months. Use this information for the first two problems. (Assume, realistically, that this is a Poisson process, and also assume, unrealistically, that all months are alike. In other words, ignore the unfortunate fact that different months have different lengths.) Find the probability that the gerbils will escape at least three times during the year 2011.

    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.
