    Simulation Help Needed

    Dear Ones,

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

    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
