# Many random number generators allow users to specify the range of the random numbers to be produced. Suppose that you specify that the random number Y can take any value between 0 and 5 . The density curve of the outcome has a constant height between 0 and 5 , and height 0 elsewhere. Draw a graph of the density curve and use it to find P(1≤Y≤3) .

Step 1

Introduction:

In a random number generator, each number within the given range has equal probability of occurrence. Hence, within the specified range, the random number has uniform distribution. The density curve of the uniform distribution has a rectangular shape.
