    Need to solve using Excel Queuing System

With a crew working the wash line, Harry figures that cars can be cleaned at the rate of one every five minutes. One car at a time is cleaned in this example of single-server 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
