Suppose you choose at random a real number X from the interval [2, 10].

(a) Find the density function f(x) and the probability of an event E for this experiment, where E is a subinterval [a, b] of [2, 10].
(b) From (a) find the probability that X > 5, that 5 < X < 7, and that X2−12X +35 >0.

Step 1

First find density function f(x)

Let X follows Uniform distribution

Step 2

X lies in the interval [2, 10]

The density function of X is:

Step 3

The probability of an event E...
