Homework Help: Probability of (not) distinguish signal

  1. Jun 26, 2010 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    In moments of arbitrary time interval T, receiver catches the two signals, by
    one in each moment. Signals can not distinguish if the differences in time
    between the signal reception is less than t = 0.1T. Determine the probability that the receiver
    does not distinguish signals.

    2. Relevant equations


    3. The attempt at a solution

    [tex]n = 0.1T[/tex] - interval in which recevier can't distinguish to signals

    [tex]m = T[/tex] - total possible intervals, in which receiver can catch signals is T

    [tex]P = \frac{0.1T}{T} =0.1[/tex]

    But, it seems too simple to me ! Is that solution OK, or ... ?
