Exam P Practice Problem 105 – testing electronic devices

Problem 105-A

The length of operation (in years) for an electronic device follows an exponential distribution with mean 4. Ten such devices are being observed for one year for a quality control study.

The lengths of operation for these devices are independent.

Determine the probability that no more than three of the devices stop working before the end of the study.

Problem 105-B

Twelve patients are randomly selected from a population of patients with history of heart disease to be tracked in a health study. The study begins with an initial assessment of health status. The participants are instructed to return for a follow up visit one year after the initial assessment.

For these patients, the time (in years) from the initial assessment to the next heart attack has an exponential distribution with mean 6.25 years. The times to the next heart attack for these patients are independent.

Determine the probability that ten or more patients experience no heart attack prior to the one-year follow up visit.

      \displaystyle \bold ( \bold A \bold ) \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \  \bold 0 \bold . \bold 2 \bold 9 \bold 1 \bold 3

      \displaystyle \bold ( \bold B \bold ) \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \bold 0 \bold . \bold 4 \bold 5 \bold 1 \bold 9

      \displaystyle \bold ( \bold C \bold ) \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \bold 0 \bold . \bold 5 \bold 4 \bold 8 \bold 1

      \displaystyle \bold ( \bold D \bold ) \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \bold 0 \bold . \bold 6 \bold 4 \bold 5 \bold 5

      \displaystyle \bold ( \bold E \bold ) \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \bold 0 \bold . \bold 7 \bold 4 \bold 3 \bold 2
