Average time             minutes

c. What is the utilization of the inspector? (Round your answer to 1 decimal place.)

Utilization             %

d. What is the probability that when you arrive there will be three or more vehicles ahead of you? (Round your answer to 1 decimal place.)

Probability             %

a) Average length of the waiting line:::::

=(12)2 / 13(13-12)

=144 /13 (1)

=144/13

=11.07 customer

= Arrival time

= Service time

b)Average total time = 1 /

=1/13-12

=1/1

=1 minutes

________________________________________________

c) utilization of the inspector = p

=12/13

=92.31%

d)P=(n>4)

=()5

=(12/13)5

=(0.923)5

=0.669
