Average waiting time, Computer Engineering

Customer arrivals at a gas station can be characterized by exponential distribution with mean of 10 minutes. The amount of time they take to pump gas can be characterized by an exponential distribution with a mean of 8 minutes. Gas station has one pump. Assume that the gas station is open 24/7. Model the system using Simul 8, and determine the following-

1. What is the average waiting time for the customers?

2. What is the flowtime (also known as sojourn time) for the customers?

3. On average, how many customers are waiting to pump gas?

4. What proportion of customers experience no wait at all to pump gas?
