An expressway off-ramp consisting of a single lane leads directly to a tollbooth. The rate of arrival of vehicles at the expressway can be considered to be Poisson with a mean of
45 veh/h, and the rate of service to vehicles can be assumed to be exponentially distri-buted with a mean of 1 min.

(b) What is the length of the ramp required to provide storage for all exiting vehicles 90 percent of the time? Assume the average length of a vehicle is 18 ft and that there is an average space of 10 ft between consecutive vehicles waiting to be served. (c) What is the average waiting time a driver waits before being served at the tollbooth (that is. the average waiting time in the queue)?
