hour, what is the probability there will be < 2 in the second hour. (c) Suppose
that the operator gets to take a break after she has answered 10 calls. How
long are her average work periods? 2.6. EXERCISES 95 2.25. Tra c on Rosedale Road in Princeton, NJ, follows a Poisson process
with rate 6 cars per minute. A deer runs out of the woods and tries to cross
the road. If there is a car passing in the next 5 seconds then there will be a
collision. (a) Find the probability of a collision. (b) What is the chance of a
collision if the deer only needs 2 seconds to cross the road.
2.26. Calls to the Dryden ﬁre department arrive according to a Poisson process
with rate 0.5 per hour. Suppose that the time required to respond to a call,
