Solution

The correct option is C 3.2
Arrival rate (Poisson distribution), λ=4 per hr.,

Service rate (Exponential distribution)

μ=5 perhr., ρ=0.8

Expected length of queue or average number of customers in the queue,

Lq=ρ21ρ=(λμ)1(λμ)=(45)21(45)=3.2

Points to Remember:
  • Average number of customers in the queue doesn't count the customers being served.
  • Average number of customers in the system tells on an average total number of customers in the system and it improves both the customers waiting in the queue, along with being served.
