Problem 118E

Problem 118E

An accident victim will die unless in the next 10 minutes he receives some type A, Rh-positive blood, which can be supplied by a single donor. The hospital requires 2 minutes to type a prospective donor’s blood and 2 minutes to complete the transfer of blood. Many untyped donors are available, and 40%of them have type A, Rh-positive blood. What is the probability that the accident victim will be saved if only one blood-typing kit is available? Assume that the typing kit is reusable but can process only one donor at a time.

Step-by-Step Solution:

Answer:    

Step 1 of 3:

     If the victim is to be saved, a proper donor must be found within eight minutes. The patient will be saved if the proper donor is found on the 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th try.
