A Poisson process with 10 accidents per week is equivalently a Poisson process with

' 10 / 7 accidents per day. Thus, given that 7 accidents occurred in a particular week, the

probability that exactly one accident occurred each day of that week is just

P (1 accident per day for 7 days) (e 10 / 7 (10 / 7)) 7

For a Poisson process with parameter , the waiting times between arrivals (in this case,

accidents) are independent and exponentially distributed with mean 1 / . In this situation, that

means the waiting times are exponentially distributed with mean 0.1 weeks between accidents,

which corresponds to a mean of 16.8 hours between accidents. However, the distribution of an

exponential random variable is heavily right-skewed i.e., much of the mass of the pdf is

concentrated below the mean. (See plot below for this exponential distribution over the interval

[0, 1]) Hence, it is far more likely that waiting times less than 16.8 hours occur, and with shorter

waiting times, it is difficult to have only 1 accident a day for 7 straight days.

We have that is uniformly distributed on ( / 2, / 2) . If R A sin( ) , then to find the

distribution of R, we just find the cdf for R as a function of x and then take the derivative with

respect to x to obtain the pdf.

There are a total of 10 different sequences in which the 5 transistors (2 defective) can be

drawn from the bin. Each of these sequences is equally likely to occur, so the joint pdf of N 1

The customers can be viewed as draws from a multinomial distribution where p1 0.45 is the

probability of an ordinary purchaser, p 2 0.15 is the probability of a plasma purchaser, and

p3 0.40 is the probability of a browser. Hence, the probability that the store owner sells

exactly 2 ordinary sets and 1 plasma set on a day when 5 customers enter his store is just

The joint pdf of X and Y is f ( x, y ) e ( x y ) , where x and y are both non-negative real numbers.

b) For this part, note that the joint pdf of X and Y can be re-written as

f ( x, y ) e x e y f X ( x) f Y ( y ) ; that is, X and Y are independent. Hence, P ( X a) can

be obtained by integrating e x and ignoring any mention of y (if X and Y were not

independent, we would have to integrate f ( x, y ) over the full range of y and then

integrate x over the interval (0, a)):

Let X 1 and X 2 denote respectively the locations of the ambulance and the accident at the

moment the accident occurs. Then the distance is given by X 1 X 2 , but this is equivalently

the range of the two Uniform(0, L) random variables (i.e., X 1 X 2 X ( 2) X (1) ). Using

Equation (6.7), we get as the cdf of X 1 X

a) The joint density over the region R must integrate to 1, so we have

( x , y )R

b) Since the region R is a square with sides of length 2, A( R ) 4 , and f ( x, y ) 1 / 4 for

1 x 1, 1 y 1 . But this can be re-written as f ( x, y ) f ( x ) f ( y ) , where

f ( x ) 1 / 2, 1 x 1 , and f ( y ) 1 / 2, 1 y 1 . In other words, X and Y are

independent uniform random variables on the interval (-1, 1).

c) The probability that (X, Y) lies in the circle of radius 1 centered at the origin is just the

area of the circle multiplied by 1/4:
