@Rosie: Sorry, pls. replace packets with people :) I study this from a communication networks perspective...

comment How to get transition rates in a $M/M/\infty$ queue
@Rosie: It is not about the number of servers, but the number of packets, which is $n$. To understand about the minimum, say you are in a state with $n$ packets and ask "When will I change from this state?" The answer for this is the minimum of the interarrival time and the $n$ service times for each of the packets.

comment Probablity that the drawn number is greater than the previously drawn
Which means $A_k=(x_k=1)\mid H_{k-1}$, or $A_k$ is the event of the $k^{th}$ number being the highest "given" you have observed some $k-1$ numbers before.

comment Probablity that the drawn number is greater than the previously drawn
I'll try to explain. $A_k$ is the event that the $k^{th}$ number is the highest of all $k$ numbers you have observed so far. Unconditionally the probability that the $k^{th}$ number is the highest is $P(x_k=1)=1/k$. But we have observed some $k-1$ numbers so far and we need $P(x_k=1\mid H_{k-1})$.

Because when you say "than all previously drawn", what you essentially mean is "given all numbers I have observed" or in other words, "given the history so far" - this is captured by $H_{k-1}$.

comment Simple probability Question?
@NLed: Or even simply, the teacher has 10 lectures and is equally likely to choose between them for her 5 qs, so the probability of one lecture appearing in the exam is 5/10=0.5.
