Cars arrive at an intersection with a stoplight, which is either red or green. The cars all travel in the same direction, that is, we ignore cross-traffic & oncoming traffic. Assume that the intersection is initially empty. Assume that, at every second, there is a probability p that one new car will arrive at the light, and the outcome is independent of past & future. Let L>=1 be an integer. A red light lasts L seconds; likewise for green. If the light is red, no cars can leave the intersectionâ€¦Â Expand
