Simulation Help Needed
Dear Ones,

Please show me how to calculate this problem. I'm totally lost.(Crying)

The Hoylake Rescue Squad receives an emergency call every 1,2,3,4,5, and 6 hours, according to the following progabiltiy distribution. The quad is on duty 24 hours per day, 7 days per week. Simulate the emergency calls for 3 days (note that this will require a "running" or cumatative hourly clock), using the random number table.

Time Between
Emergency Calls (hr.)
1
2
3
4
Probabilty
.06
.10
.30
.30
.20
.05
1.00

Best regards,
Bensie Watkins
