With a crew working the wash line, Harry figures that cars can be cleaned at the rate of one every 5 minutes. One car at a time is cleaned in this example of a single-channel waiting line. Assuming Poisson arrivals and exponential service times, find the

A.) average number of cars in line

B.) average time a car waits before it is washed

C.) average time a car spends in the service system

D.) utilization rate of the car wash

E.) probability that no cars are in the system
