A computer running a Microsoft operating system will experience its first Blue Screen Of Death (BSOD) within the first t years given by the probability density function ( t > 0) f t = 4 t t 2 2 2 A. What's the probability that a computer will get its first BSOD between the 2 nd and 4 th year? 2 4 4 t t 2 2 2 dt = .222 Or 22.2% B. What's the probability that a 10 year old computer won't have gotten a BSOD? 1 10 4 t t 2 2 2 dt = .0196 Or about 2% C. By what time (exact, or rounded to the nearest hundredth) will half the computers get their first BSOD? We need to solve the pdf d 2 2 t t 2 2 2 dt = .5 for d . Using u = t 2 2 and du = 2 t dt , we get: 2 t = t = d 1 u 2 du = 2 u 1 t = t = d = 2 1 t 2 2 d = 2 1 d 2 2 1 2 = 1...
