# A petrol station in the capita

Question 4 (g,h)

A petrol station in the capital Kingstown has a single pump manned by one attendant. Vehicles arrive at the rate of 20 customers per hour and petrol filling takes 2 minutes on an average. Assume the arrival rate is Poisson probability distribution and service rate is exponentially distributed. Arrivals tend to follow a Poisson distribution, and service times  tend to be exponential. The attendant is paid \$10 per hour, but because of lost goodwill and sales, station loses about \$15 per hour of customer time spent waiting for the attendant to service and order.Answer the following questions:

g What is the probability that there is exactly 2 customers in the system?
h) What is the probability that there are more than 3 customers in the system?
