F.23 Adventure Rafting runs rafts on the Colorado River. It has eight rafts in its inventory. The demand for rafts during the busy months of June and July has been either 4, 5, 6, 7 or 8, with probabilities of 0.1, 0.3, 0.3, 0.2, or 0.1 respectively. Use Table F.4 to simulate the number of rafts the company will need for 10 consecutive days. Start at the top of column number 4 (random number = 88) and move down in the table (second number = 02) to locate the remaining numbers. F.24 The number of cars arriving at Mark Coffin’s self-service gasoline station during the last 50 hours of operation are as follows:
Number of Cars Arriving Frequency 6 10 7 12 8 20 9 8

The following random numbers have been generated: 44, 30, 26, 09, 49, 13, 33, 89, 13, and 37. Simulate 10 hours of arrivals. What is the average number of arrivals during this period? F.25 Average daily sales of a product in Paul Jordan’s store are 8 units. The actual number of sales each day is either 7, 8, or 9, with probabilities 0.3, 0.4, or 0.3, respectively. The lead time for delivery averages 4 days, although the time may be 3, 4, or 5 days, with probabilities of .2, .6, and .2. Jordan plans to place an order when the inventory level drops to 32 units (based on the average demand and average lead time). The following random numbers have been generated: 60, 87, 46, 63 (set 1) 52, 78, 13, 06, 99, 98, 80, 09, 67, 89, 45 (set 2) Use set 1 to generate lead times and set 2 to simulate daily demand. Simulate two ordering periods and determine how often the company runs out of stock before an order arrives.

F.26 Woodworth Property Management is responsible for the maintenance, rental, and day-to-day operation of a large apartment complex in El Paso. Bruce Woodworth is especially concerned about the cost projections for replacing air conditioner compressors. He would like to simulate the number of compressor failures each year over the next 20 years. Using data from a similar apartment building that he also manages, Woodworth establishes the following table of relative frequency of failures during a year:
Number of A.C. Compressor Failures 0 1 2 Probability (relative frequency) .06 .13 .25
