When a British travelling company reduces fares of a particular trip from London to Nottingham. A small taxi can carry four passengers. The time between calls for tickets is exponentially distributed with a mean of 30 minutes. Assume that each call orders one ticket. What is the probability that the taxi is filled in less than 3 hours from the time of the fare reduction?

Given \(\displaystyle\mu={M}{e}{a}{n}={30}\) minutes
Formula probability exponential distribution: ​​​​​​\(\displaystyle​​​​​​{P}{\left({x}\le{a}\right)}={1}-\frac{{e}^{ -{{a}}}}{\mu}\)

Let us evaluate the formula at x=180 (as 3 hours are 180 minutes): \(\displaystyle{P}{\left({x}\le{180}\right)}={1}-{e}^{ -{{\left(\frac{180}{{30}}\right)}}}={1}-{e}^{ -{{6}}}={1}-{\left(\frac{1}{{c}^{6}}\right)}~{0.9975}={99.75}\%\)

4.7 A multiprocessor with eight processors has 20attached tape drives. There is a large number of jobs submitted tothe system that each require a maximum of four tape drives tocomplete execution. Assume that each job starts running with onlythree tape drives for a long period before requiring the fourthtape drive for a short period toward the end of its operation. Alsoassume an endless supply of such jobs.
a) Assume the scheduler in the OS will not start a job unlessthere are four tape drives available. When a job is started, fourdrives are assigned immediately and are not released until the jobfinishes. What is the maximum number of jobs that can be inprogress at once? What is the maximum and minimum number of tapedrives that may be left idle as a result of this policy?
b) Suggest an alternative policy to improve tape driveutilization and at the same time avoid system deadlock. What is themaximum number of jobs that can be in progress at once? What arethe bounds on the number of idling tape drives?

Has the recent drop in airplane passengers resulted in better on-time performance? Before the recent downturn one airline bragged that 92% of its flights were on time. A random sample of 165 flights com- pleted this year reveals that 153 were on time. Can we conclude at the 5% significance level that the airline’s on-time performance has improved?
