The Burger King in the ASU-MU has only one person working at the register. Customers arrive 12 per hour according to a Poisson distribution. The Burger King employee on average can help 16 customers per hour according to an exponential distribution FIND GIVENS FIRST: λ = mean arrival rate = 12customers / 1 hour μ = mean service rate = 16 customers / 1 hour MODULE 05: ADDITIONAL PROBLEM #1

The Burger King in the ASU-MU has only one person working at the register. Customers arrive 12 per hour according to a Poisson distribution. The Burger King employee on average can help 16 customers per hour according to an exponential distribution A. What percentage of the time is the Burger King employee busy? ρ = λ / μ ρ = (12/hr) / (16/hr) ρ = 0 .7 5 0 MODULE 06: ADDITIONAL PROBLEM #1 Worker is Busy 75.0% of the Time

Avg. number of customers in queue  :  l  = ρ [ λ / ( μ - λ 29 ] l  =  0.750  [ 12 / ( 16 - 12 ) ] l  =  2.25 customers DO NOT ROUND MODULE 06: ADDITIONAL PROBLEM #1 The Burger King in the ASU-MU has only one person working at the register. Customers arrive 12 per hour according to a Poisson distribution. The Burger King employee on average can help 16 customers per hour according to an exponential distribution B. What is the average number of customers WAITING to be helped?
