surges occur at rate 8 per day and damage a computer with probability 0.001;
“medium” surges occur at rate 1 per day and will damage a computer with
probability 0.01; “large” surges occur at rate 1 per month and damage a computer with probability 0.1. Assume that months are 30 days. (a) what is the 98 CHAPTER 2. POISSON PROCESSES expected number of power surges per month? (b) What is the expected number
of computer damaging power surges per month? (c) What is the probability a
computer will not be damaged in one month? (d) What is the probability that
the ﬁrst computer damaging surge is a small one?
