This question already has an answer here:
I am struggling to determine the number of instances a resource will have. I have performed extensive research on this, but unfortunately have come up short. I am tasked with drawing a resource allocation graph and I have been provided with the number of processes which is 3 and the of resources which is 5. I have concluded that when drawing the resource allocation graph, I will need to know the number of instances of a resource. Please could someone just help in how I would go about working out or determining the number of instances a resource will have?
