2. The time between surface finish problems in galvanizing process is exponentially distributed with a mean of 40 hours. A single plant operates three galvanizing lines that are assumed to operate independently.

a. What is the probability that none of the lines experiences a surface finish problem in 40 hours of operation.

b. What is the probability that all three lines experience a surface finish problem between 20 and 40 hours of operation.

3. In a digital communication channel, assume that the number of bits recevied in error can be modeled by a binomial random variable, and assume that the probabilitz that a bit is recived in error is 10^-5 . If 16 million bits are trasmitted, what is the probability that more than 150 errors occur?
