   1. A bank has one drive-in teller and room for one additional customer to wait.
      Customers arriving when the queue is full, park and go inside the bank to transact
      business. The time-between-arrivals and service time distributions are given

   Time between arrivals (minutes)          0       1       2    3        4          5
   Probability                              0.09    0.17    0.27 0.20     0.15       0.12

   Service Time (minutes)            1       2             3                4
   Probability                       0.20    0.40          0.28             0.12

        Simulate the operation of the drive-in teller for 10 new customers. The first of the
        10 new customers arrives at a time determined at random. Start the simulation
        with one customers being served, leaving at time 3, and one in the queue. How
        many customers went into the bank to transact business? Make sure to show
        simulation table (20 points).

   2. A tool crib with one attendant serves a group of 10 mechanics. Mechanics work
      for an exponentially distributed amount of time with mean 20 minutes, then go to
      the crib to request a special tool. Service times by the attendant are exponentially
      distributed with a mean of 3 minutes. If the attendant is paid $6 per hour and the
      mechanics $10 per hour, would it be advisable to have second attendant? (10

           a. Describe Runs up and Runs down algorithm (5 points).
           b. Consider the first 50 two-digit values in example 7.7 of chapter 7 in
              textbook. Can the hypothesis that the numbers are independent be rejected
              on the basis of the length of runs above and below the mean, where alpha
              = 0.05? (15 points)

  4. Use the multiplicative congruential method to generate a sequence of four three
     digit random integers. Let X0 = 117, a = 43 and m = 1000 (10 points).

  5. Describe (in detail) four steps involved in input modeling (15 points).
        a. Note: Make sure to explain all sub topics involved in each step and also
            provide examples. Refer to chapter 9 in textbook.
