The Bay City Police Department has eight patrol cars that are on constant call 24 hours per day. A patrol car requires repairs every 20 days, on average, according to an exponential distribution. When a patrol car is in need of repair, it is driven into the motor pool, which has a repair person on duty at all times. The average time required to repair a patrol car is 18 hours (exponentially distributed).
Determine the average time a patrol car is not available for use and the average number of patrol cars out of service at any one time. Indicate whether the repair service seems adequate.
