of a and n that best fit the set of recorded values.  V 8 12 15 20 28 36
I 61.7 83.4 98.7 122.4 157.5 190.5
2) A gas supplier maintains a team of engineers who are available to deal
with leaks reported by customers. Most leaks can be dealt with quickly but
some require a long time. The time (excluding travelling time) taken to
deal with a reported leak is found to have a mean of 65 minutes and a
standard deviation of 60 minutes. Assuming that the times follow a
normal distribution, estimate the probability that:
(i) it will take more than 185 minutes to deal with a reported leak.  (ii) it will take between 50 and 125 minutes to deal with a reported leak.  (iii)the mean time to deal with a random sample of 90 reported leaks is
|less then 70 minutes.|||
|3) An average of 36 vehicles an hour pass along a ‘weak’ bridge each taking|
|20 seconds to travel along it. The bridge has a regulatory capacity of two|
|vehicles. Using Poisson’s probability distribution formula:|
where µ is the mean value, and x is the number of vehicles, and given
free movement of vehicles, what is the probability that at a given instant;
|(i) The bridge is not being used?|||
|(ii) The regulatory capacity will be exceeded?|||
|4) The process in Figure 1 below is made up of a number of distinct sub|
|systems. C7 and C8 are seperate power systems (R=0.95). C6 is a multi|
|fibre signal wire comprising 6 fully redundant fibres who average 1 flaw|
|per fibre but must not have any for successful signal transmission. C3,|
|C4 and C5 are identical components (R=0.85) and at least two must work|
|for the process to maintain throughput. C2 is a thermal process whose|
|unreliability increases as temperature increases with a probability|
|distribution of N(45, 10). C1 is a quality checking human who works too|
|hard and whose reliability drops by 3% for each hour of their shift above 4.|
|If the temperature reaches 350, 2 hours into the shift and 400 after 6|
|hours. Compare the system reliability at these two stages.|||
