Let *a *denote the rate of packets arriving at a link in packets/sec, and let *μ *denote the link’s transmission rate in packets/sec. Based on the formula for the total delay (i.e., the queuing delay plus the transmission delay) derived in the previous problem, derive a formula for the total delay in terms of *a *and *μ*.

Given rate of the transmission link and the rate of packets arriving at a link.
