# 15.2 Problems on random selection  (Page 5/7)

The number N of “hits” in a day on a Web site on the internet is Poisson (80). Suppose the probability is 0.10 that any hit results in a sale, is 0.30that the result is a request for information, and is 0.60 that the inquirer just browses but does not identify an interest. What is the probability of 10 or more sales? Whatis the probability that the number of sales is at least half the number of information requests (use suitable simple approximations)?

The number N of orders sent to the shipping department of a mail order house is Poisson (700). Orders require one of seven kinds of boxes, which with packing costs havedistribution

 Cost (dollars) 0.75 1.25 2 2.5 3 3.5 4 Probability 0.1 0.15 0.15 0.25 0.2 0.1 0.05

What is the probability the total cost of the $2.50 boxes is no greater than$475? What is the probability the cost of the $2.50 boxes is greater than the cost of the$3.00 boxes?What is the probability the cost of the $2.50 boxes is not more than$50.00 greater than the cost of the $3.00 boxes? Suggestion . Truncate the Poisson distributions at about twice the mean value.

If the number of cars passing a traffic check point in an hour is Poisson (130), what is the expected number of Volvos? Whatis the probability of at least 30 Volvos? What is the probability the number of Volvos is between 16 and 40 (inclusive)? P1 = cpoisson(130*0.2,30) = 0.2407 P2 = cpoisson(26,16) - cpoisson(26,41) = 0.9819 A service center on an interstate highway experiences customers in a one-hour period as follows: • Northbound: Total vehicles: Poisson (200). Twenty percent are trucks. • Southbound: Total vehicles: Poisson (180). Twenty five percent are trucks. • Each truck has one or two persons, with respective probabilities 0.7 and 0.3. • Each car has 1, 2, 3, 4, or 5 persons, with probabilities 0.3, 0.3, 0.2, 0.1, 0.1, respectively Under the usual independence assumptions, let D be the number of persons to be served.

College algebra is really hard?
Absolutely, for me. My problems with math started in First grade...involving a nun Sister Anastasia, bad vision, talking & getting expelled from Catholic school. When it comes to math I just can't focus and all I can hear is our family silverware banging and clanging on the pink Formica table.

I am 1 year old but I can do it! 1+1=2 proof very hard for me though.

hi
Not really they are just easy concepts which can be understood if you have great basics. I am 14 I understood them easily.

The given of f(x=x-2. then what is the value of this f(3) 5f(x+1)
hmm well what is the answer
Abhi
If f(x) = x-2 then, f(3) when 5f(x+1) 5((3-2)+1) 5(1+1) 5(2) 10

how do they get the third part x = (32)5/4
make 5/4 into a mixed number, make that a decimal, and then multiply 32 by the decimal 5/4 turns out to be
AJ
how
Sheref
can someone help me with some logarithmic and exponential equations.
sure. what is your question?
20/(×-6^2)
Salomon
okay, so you have 6 raised to the power of 2. what is that part of your answer
I don't understand what the A with approx sign and the boxed x mean
it think it's written 20/(X-6)^2 so it's 20 divided by X-6 squared
Salomon
I'm not sure why it wrote it the other way
Salomon
I got X =-6
Salomon
ok. so take the square root of both sides, now you have plus or minus the square root of 20= x-6
oops. ignore that.
so you not have an equal sign anywhere in the original equation?
hmm
Abhi
is it a question of log
Abhi
🤔.

I rally confuse this number And equations too I need exactly help

why surface tension is zero at critical temperature
Shanjida
I think if critical temperature denote high temperature then a liquid stats boils that time the water stats to evaporate so some moles of h2o to up and due to high temp the bonding break they have low density so it can be a reason
