Step 1

From the given information, mean (μ) = 97 minutes and standard deviation (σ) = 20minutes.

Let ‘X’ be a normal distribution random variable.

Step 2

(a) The probability that a randomly selected time interval between eruptions is longer than 105 minutes is,

Step 3

Therefore, the probability that a randomly selected time interva...
