Question: The Associate Dean in the College of Business at Tech

The Associate Dean in the College of Business at Tech is attempting to determine which of two copiers he should lease for the college’s administrative suite.

A deluxe, high-speed copier leases for $16 per hour, and it requires an average of three minutes to complete a copying job. Employees arrive at the copying machine at the rate of seven per hour (Poisson distributed) and an employee’s time is valued at $10 per hour. Determine which copier the college should lease.
