Attached is a copy of an Excel spread sheet,
•This spreadsheet contains 4 worksheets
oWorksheet #1: Lists the random numbers  you  use for your simulation.  There are three sets, with each set having up to 50 numbers.  Use each set for each type of randomization.  For example, on problem 9, you will use the first set to randomize interarrival times and the second set to randomize service times.  
oWorksheet #2:  This contains the solution to problem 4-12.  The formulas contained in this worksheet should assist you with 4-9 and 4-20.  Also note how the random numbers from worksheet #1 were used in this worksheet.
oWorksheet #3: Contains problem 4-9,  to complete
oWorksheet #4: Contains problem 4-20, to complete.
Problem 12 is already done. their are only two problems that is 9 and 20

Simulate the movement of tankers to and from the single loading dock for
the first 20 arrivals. Compute the average time between arrivals,
average waiting time to load, and the average number of tankers waiting
to be loaded.
Discuss any hesitation you might have about using your results for
decision making.
12. Each semester the student in the college of business at State
University must have their course schedules by the college advisor. The
students line up in the hallway outside the advisor’s office. The
students arrive at the office according to the following probability
distribution.

Simulate this course approval system for 90 minutes. Compare the average
queue length and the average time a student must wait, and discuss the
results.
20. The Western Outfitters store specializes in denim jeans. The
variable cost of the jeans varies according to several factors,
including the cost of the jeans from the distributor, labor cost,
handling, packaging, and so on. Price also is a random variable that
varies according to the competitor’s price. Sales volume also varies
each month. The probability distributions for price, volume, and
variable costs each month are as follows.
Sales Volume

Final costs are $9,000 per month for the store.
Simulate 20 months of store sales, and compute the probability the store
will at least break even and the average profit (or loss).
