Unformatted text preview: N with rate 1 3 per minute. Assume that the bus has left at time t = 0, leaving no customers behind. Let T denote the time in minutes of arrival for the next bus; then the number of passengers present when it arrives will be N T . Suppose that T is independent of N (the arrival process) with uniform distribution over the interval (0 , 120]. (1) Compute IE ( N T | T ) and IE ( N 2 T | T ). (2) Compute IEN T and Var( N T ). 1...
