Question

The Hoylake Rescue Squad receives an emergency call every 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, or 6 hours, according to the following probability distribution;Time Between emergency Probability;Calls (hours);1 ??????????????..0.05;2 ??????????????..0.10;3 ??????????????..0.30;4 ??????????????..0.30;5 ??????????????..0.20;6 ??????????????..0.05;1.00;The squad is on duty 24 hours per day, 7 days per week.;a. Simulate the emergency calls for three days (note that this will require a ?running,? or cumulative, hourly clock) using the random number table.;b. Compute the average time between calls and compare this value with the expected value of the time between calls from the probabilistic distribution. Why are the results different?;c. How many calls were made during the three-day period?;Can you logically assume that this is an average number of calls per three-day period? If not, how could you simulate to determine such an average?
