About question 13.2 (fwd)


Sorry -- for the N-Step LOOK answer to this question, you need to know
how many requests are in the queue when the pass starts.

Assume that
	- the first 4 requests are there already when the pass starts
	- the remaining 5 come in very quickly, right after the pass has
		started.  No more arrive during that pass

NOTE THAT "N" *DOES*NOT* REFER TO A CONSTANT VALUE!!  The number of requests
that will be processed during each scan depends **entirely** on how
rapidly new requests come in.
