Perhaps the value of Lambda has changed because of an overall increase in pollution. 5.22 a) .3012 b) .0988 c) .4628 The result is likely to happen almost half the time (46.26%). Ship channel and weather conditions are about normal for this period. Safety awareness is about normal for this period. There is no compelling reason to reject the lambda value of 0.6 collisions per 4 months based on an outcome of 0 or 1 collisions per 6 months.

    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.
