Dr. Kane sees each patient for 15 minutes and charges Rs. 200/-, while Dr. Wayne sees each patient for 25 minutes and charges Rs. 300/-.
The clinic has three rooms numbered 1, 2 and 3 which are assigned to the three doctors as per the following table.
The clinic is open from 9 a.m. to 11.30 a.m. every Monday to Saturday.
On arrival each patient is handed a numbered token indicating their position in the queue, starting with token number 1 every day.
