This is for a introduction to computer networks class:
Given a link with a maximum transmission rate of 28.2 Mbps. Only two computers, X and Y, wish to transmit starting at time t = 0 seconds. Computer X sends fileX (20 MiB) and computer Y sends fileY (486 KiB), both starting at time t = 0.
Statistical multiplexing is used, with details as follows
Packet Payload Size = 1000 Bytes
Packet Header Size = 24 Bytes (overhead)
Ignore Processing and Queueing delays
Assume partial packets (packets consisting of less than 1000 Bytes of data) are padded so that they are the same size as full packets.
Assume continuous alternating-packet transmission.
Computer X gets the transmission medium first.
At what time (t = ?) would FileY finish transmitting?
Give answer in milliseconds, without units, and round to one decimal places (e.g. for an answer of 0.013777 seconds you would enter "13.8" without the quotes)
Please provide step by step instructions so that I can apply it to similar problem.
Answer should be 289.3 ms
