### 4-9 Exponential Distribution :

4-9 Exponential Distribution Our starting point for observing the system does not matter. An even more interesting property of an exponential random variable is the lack of memory property. In Example 4-21, suppose that there are no log-ons from 12:00 to 12:15; the probability that there are no log-ons from 12:15 to 12:21 is still 0.082. Because we have already been waiting for 15 minutes, we feel that we are “due.” That is, the probability of a log-on in the next 6 minutes should be greater than 0.082. However, for an exponential distribution this is not true.
