Unformatted text preview: ther taxis are present. However, if an arriving person does not ﬁnd a taxi waiting he leaves to ﬁnd alternative transportation. (a) Find the proportion of arriving customers that get taxis. (b) Find the average number of taxis waiting. 4.33. Queue with impatient customers. Customers arrive at a single server at rate and require an exponential amount of service with rate µ. Customers waiting in line are impatient and if they are not in service they will leave at rate independent of their position in the queue. (a) Show that for any > 0 the system has a stationary distribution. (b) Find the stationary distribution in the very special case in which = µ. 4.34.

However, when there are three or more customers are present, an assistant comes over to bag up the groceries and reduces the service time to 2 minutes.
