Statistics 400 Lecture 15 (Sep 28) Waiting Time Review: Example : Customers arrive at Staples according a Poisson distribution with mean rate 1/3 per minute. On Thanksgiving morning, Staples opens 5:00am in the Morning. The first 10 customers will get a free flash drive. Let W denote the waiting time until the 10 th customer comes in. What is the cumulative distribution function of W.
