Will I. Fail, a reliability engineer for Major Motors, has
been tasked to test 20 alternators based on a new design in order to estimate
their reliability. He has decided to terminate the test after 10 failures with
the following failure times (in operating hours) observed: 251,365,286, 752,
465, 134, 832,543,912,220. Derive an empirical reliability distribution. On the
basis of this distribution, estimate, from a total of 5000 alternators placed
in Major Motors’ new Zazoom sedan, the number that will fail within the
12-month warranty period. Assume that the typical driver averages 1.0
