Well, the homework's not graded and is solely for our benefit of understanding the material, so it wouldn't hurt. Also, it's 2 am here and I need sleep so I'll go with yes, please give an answer.

Sorry, but I'm not really seeing where this is going. Care to elaborate a bit?

I know that the expected value of the waiting time is $1/{\lambda}$. Is that what you're getting at?

Scratch that--A little consideration of my own helped me understand it. Thanks!

This all makes sense up until you write up your equation. I can see how to apply it, but I'm not seeing why $$P(X_2 = 0, X_1 > 0) = P(X_2 = 0) - P(X_1 = 0).$$ Could you explain that?

Thanks, Byron. That's exactly what I was looking for. Incidentally I was able to figure it out when I needed it, but thanks anyway!

revised Create a C++ program to evaluate the following series: $\sin x \approx x - \frac{x^3}{3! }+\frac{x^5}{5!}-\frac{x^7}{7!}\cdots\pm\frac{x^n}{n!}$

You'd change it to \approx because the series is approximating sin(x), not evaluating it exactly.
