Consider the attached image, in which a single router is transmitting packets, each of length L bits, over a single link with transmission rate R Mbps to another router at the other end of the link.

Suppose that the packet length is L= 12000 bits, and that the link transmission rate along the link to router on the right is R = 10 Mbps.

(a) What is the transmission delay (the time needed to transmit all of a packet's bits into the link)?

(b) what is the maximum number of packets per second that can be transmitted by the link?
