1. Dr. Tarun Gupta, a Michigan vet, is running a rabies vaccination clinic for dogs at the local grade school. Tarun can "shoot" a dog every 3 minutes. It is estimated that the dogs will arrive independently and randomly throughout the day at a rate of one dog every 6 minutes according to a Poisson distribution. Also assume that Tarun's shooting times are negative exponentially distributed.
a. The probability that Tarun is idle ____
b. The proportion of the time that Tarun is
c. The average number of dogs being vaccinated and waiting to be vaccinated =___ dogs

Resolved Question: How would you pair some
We're looking for some new combinations using our favourite first and middle names; we want to see if there is anything different that we like. Whilst we don't mind the first names also being used as middle names, please don't use any of the middle names as first names (they are all the names of people we would like to honour and, as many of them are still living, they are middle names only). And please don't change the spelling - we are happy with the spelling as is.
First Names - Abigail, Aubrey, Bethany, Bryony, Chloe, Claire, Eleanor, Elodie, Isobel, Jade, Juliet, Lillian, Paige, Rebekah, Rosalie, Sophie, Taylor, Violet
Middle Names - Anne, Barbara, Christine, Dorothy, Elizabeth, Fay, Jacqueline, Jessie, Katherine, Lauren
First Names - Aiden, Blaise, Connor, Edward, Flynn, Hamish, Hunter, Isaac, Jarrod, Kaiden, Lachlan, Mason, Noah, Oliver, Timothy, Wesley, Xavier, Zachary
Middle Names - Anthony, Dudley, Francis, Laurence, Max, Michael, Peter, Raymond, Thomas, William

Resolved Question: What would you name a
Feel free to make as many combinations as you would like, but please at least one girl and one boy! I'm just interested to see if other people would pair up the names differently to me - it might help me get some of my favourites over the line with my partner!
Please don't change the spellings (I like the spelling I have chosen and will not change it) and please don't use middle names as first names (they are middle names for a reason). Feel free to use first names as middle names though!
FN - Abigail, Amber, Aria, Arielle, Aubrey, Avery, Bethany, Charlotte, Chloe, Claire, Eleanor, Elodie, Eloise, Helena, Isobel, Jade, Juliet, Kendall, Lorelei, Madeleine, Ophelia, Paige, Penelope, Peyton, Primrose, Rori, Sophie, Spencer, Taylor
MN - Anne, Barbara, Christine, Dorothy, Elizabeth, Fay, Katherine, Lauren, Lee, Jacqueline, Jessie, Jessica
FN - Aiden, Archer, Austin, Blaise, Blake, Cameron, Connor, Damon, Edward, Flynn, Hadley, Hamish, Hunter, Isaac, Jacob, Jensen, Kaiden, Lachlan, Marshall, Mason, Noah, Oliver, Parker, Reid, Samuel, Theodore, Timothy, Wesley, Zachary
MN - Anthony, Dean, Dudley, Francis, Laurence, Max, Michael, Peter, Thomas A few people have mentioned that they aren't fans of my middle names - whilst I completely understand and, under usual circumstances, they probably wouldn't make my list at all, I just wanted to note that they are all family names (my mother, my partner's mother, grandmothers, etc) and, as such, have a sentimental meaning to either myself or my partner. This is also why we do not want to use these names as first names.

Resolved Question: What combinations would
I think I've been staring at our list too long! I have a list of names that I love for first names and a list that I love for middle names - could you try putting them into some combinations? Do as many or as little as you like! Change spellings if you like, although I'll probably revert back to my originals.
Oh, and please don't use middle names as first names - most are named for family members and many of them are still living, so it could get confusing! But feel free to use first names as middle names =)
