© 2010 Pearson Education Inc.Goldstein/Schneider/Lay/Asmar, CALCULUS AND ITS APPLICATIONS, 12e – Slide 14 of 15 Applications of Expected ValueEXAMPLE SOLUTION The number of phone calls coming into a telephone switchboard during each minute was recorded during an entire hour. During 30 of the 1-minute intervals there were no calls, during 20 intervals there was one call, and during 10 intervals there were two calls. A 1-minute interval is to be selected at random and the number of calls noted. Let X be the outcome. Then X is a random variable taking on the values 0, 1, and 2. (a) Write out a probability table for X. (b) Compute E(X). (c) Interpret E(X). Number of Calls012 Probability30/60 = 1/220/60 = 1/310/60 = 1/6 (a)

© 2010 Pearson Education Inc.Goldstein/Schneider/Lay/Asmar, CALCULUS AND ITS APPLICATIONS, 12e – Slide 15 of 15 Applications of Expected Value (b) (c) Since E(X) = 0.67, this means that the expected number of phone calls in a 1-minute period is 0.67 phone calls. CONTINUED
