**Answer:-**

**Given That:-**

RideShare offers short-term rentals of vehicles that are kept in small lots in urban neighborhoods with plenty of potential customers. With one lot, it has eight cars.

However, because customers pay a monthly fee to subscribe to this service, RideShare does not want customers to be disappointed too often.

**b. What is the implied utilization?**

Demand rate =total cars per 5 kms/40 minutes time

= 60/40

= 1.5 cars/hr

implied utilization = Demand rate/offered load

= 1.5/1.6

= 0.9375

= 0.94

implied utilization = 0.94

**Answer is option D.**

**c. What is the capacity of the process (rentals per
hour)?**

capacity of the process = 1 lot/5 hours

= 8/5

capacity of the process = 1.6 rentals per hour

**Answer is option B.**

**d. What is the probability that all eight cars are
rented at the same time?**

Let,

eight cars are rented at the same time is :

(1 - 0.9375) * (0.9375)8

= (0.0625) * (0.5967)

= 0.0372

Therefore,

The probability that all eight cars are rented at the same time
is **0.037**
