Round Robin Algorithm

Hey, guys

I have a task:

JobRunning timePriority

All 5 jobs have the same arrival time.

The question is, what is the average waiting time according to Round Robin algorithm. Quantum = 1 min.

The answer that was given by a teacher:
(B+E+A+C+D)+(B+E+A+C)+ (B+E+A)+ (B+E+A)+ (B+E+A)+ (B+E+A)+ (E+A)+ (E+A)+ (A+A)/5 = 5.4

According to all information that I have read, waiting time for this question is 15.2. Where from the number 5.4 came from? Is this the real answer?

This is a question from my exam and its really bugging me. Smilie

Sorry for possible dumb question. I was reading questions in homework help section and was really embarrassing to ask this simple thing there.
