2. A piece of equipment contains four identical tubes and can function only if all the four are in working order. The lives of tubes has approximately uniform distribution from 1000 to 2000 hours. The current maintenance practice is to replace a tube when it fails. Equipments has to be shut down for 1 hr for replacing a tube, the cost of one tube is sh 100, while the shut down time cost sh 200 per hour.

3. A baker is trying to determine how many dozens of bread to bake each day. The probability distribution of the number of customers is as follows.

Number of customers: 10 121416

Number of order/customers: 1 234
Bread sells for sh 60 per dozen and cost sh 42 per dozen to make.

The breads not sold at the end of the day are disposed off at half price. Generate uniformly distributed random numbers and determine by simulation the system for 20 days the dozen of bread which should be baked.
