Unformatted text preview: rate ╬╗ . Suppose that whether or not a newly arriving customer joins the queue is determined randomly, according to the following scheme: Pr[New customer joins queue | n customers already in system] = 1 n + 1 . Hence, a new customer will not join the system with probability n n +1 . If the pump service time is exponential with rate ╬╝ , show that the limiting distribution of the number of customers at the gas station is Poisson distributed with rate ╬╗ ╬╝ ....
