To support National Heart Week, the Heart Association plans to install a free blood pressure testing booth in El Con Mall for the week. Previous experience indicates that, on the average, 10 persons per hour request a test. Assume arrivals are Poisson from an infinite population. Blood ressure measurements can be made at a constant time of five minutes each. Assume the queue length can be infinite with FCFS discipline.;a. What average number in line can be expected?;b. What average number of persons can be expected to be in the system?;c. What is the average amount of time that a person can expect to spend in line?;d. On the average, how much time will it take to measure a person's blood pressure, including waiting time?;e. On weekends, the arrival rate can be expected to increase to over 12 per hour. What effect will this have on the number in the waiting line?
