A telephone company's goal is to have no more than 4 monthly line failures on any 100 miles of line. The company currently experiences an average of 5 monthly line failures per 50 miles of line. Let x denote the number of monthly line failures per 100 miles of line. Assuming x has a Poisson distribution:

(a) Find the probability that the company will meet its goal on a particular 100 miles of line. (Do not round intermediate calculations. Round final answer to 4 decimal places.)

Probability

(b) Find the probability that the company will not meet its goal on a particular 100 miles of line. (Do not round intermediate calculations. Round final answer to 4 decimal places.)

Probability

(c) Find the probability that the company will have no more than 4 monthly failures on a particular 200 miles of line. (Do not round intermediate calculations. Round final answer to 4 decimal places.)

Probability

(d) Find the probability that the company will have more than 12 monthly failures on a particular 150 miles of line. (Do not round intermediate calculations. Round final answer to 4 decimal places.)
