While visiting Haifa, Sid Resnick discovered that people who wish to travel from the port area up the mountain frequently take a shared taxi known as a sherut. The capacity of each car is 5 people. Potential customers arrive 3.5. EXERCISES 117 according to a Poisson process with rate . As soon as 5 people are in the car, it departs for The Carmel, and another taxi moves up to accept passengerso on. A local resident (who has no need of a ride) wanders onto the scene. What is the distribution of the time he has to wait to see a cab depart? 3.24. Suppose that the limiting age distribution in (3.9) is the same as the original distribution. Conclude that F (x) = 1 e x for some &gt; 0. 118 CHAPTER 3.
