Review the car-caravan analogy in Section 1.4. Assume a propagation speed

of 100 km/hour.

a. Suppose the caravan travels 200 km, beginning in front of one tollbooth,

passing through a second tollbooth, and finishing just before a third tollbooth.

What is the end-to-end delay?

b. Repeat (a), now assuming that there are seven cars in the caravan instead

of ten.
