However, when packets are routed to the fast processor they experience a constant processing delay of Ims. a) (4 points) Derive and plot the cumulative distribution function and the probability density ofthe packet delay and b) (2 points) calculate its mean ~ value. c) (4 points) You collect the following packet delay measurements: 3,4,1,2,2,3 ms. Estimate how a '\ many additional samples you should collect so that the 90% confidence interval of the mean delay is +1........ O.lms around the sample mean (assume that the sample standard deviation wont change appreciably!) Za
