2. A chef working in a kitchen believes that the waiting time until the next dessert order is exponential, with an average of 3 minutes. The times between dessert orders are assumed to be independent exponentials, also with 3 minutes on average. Let Y be the time until the next dessert order, and let Z be the subsequent time (afterwards) until the following dessert order. [E.g., if it is 12 noon right now, and the next order arrives at 12:04 PM, and the order after that arrives at 12:11 PM, then Y = 4 and Z = 7.] Let X = Y + Z . Find the density of X . 2
