16 We divide the length of telephone calls into three categories: those lasting less than one minute (I), those lasting between one and three minutes (II), and the ones lasting more than three minutes (III). Moreover, we suppose that 60% of all calls are personal and the rest are business calls. Finally, we suppose that 10%, 20% and 70% of the personal calls are of category I, II and III, respectively. In the case of the business calls, these percentages are equal to 20%, 40% and 40%, respectively.

43). We suppose that all the components operate independently from one another and all have a 90% probability of working at a given time. Calculate the reliability of the system at that moment. 9991 B) Under the same hypotheses as in A), what is the reliability of a system made up of two subsystems placed in parallel, if each subsystem comprises three components placed in series (see system B in Fig. 12)? 9991 Question no. 26 Among the 100 passengers on board a plane landing at an airport, 80 arrive at their destination, whereas the others are in transit.
