Penny auction and a hosting server

We composed, with a little help from our customer from Austria, the following arithmetic task:

At your penny auction website you have:
- 10 live auctions;
- 150 bidding customers;
- 350 just logged in customers, not bidding;
- 1500 not logged in, just visitors, followers.

Question: how many requests will receive the server per minute?
/Please give any number what you want – average, or minimum, or maximum.../

We look forward to receive your estimations and we will respond fast - is your answer close to real or not. And you will know the level of your penny auction tech. knowledge. Please write to Thank you all in advance.
